    visited with The Stig and 4 other explorers.

    Thought it was about time I posted my report on this Lovely Mill.

    1809: a water driven carding engine was in use at Tal-y-bont where Thomas Morgan from the Caersws district of Montgomeryshire established the Leri Mills.
    1835: the Leri Mills had carding engines , fulling stocks, a hand mule for spinning, together with a number of hand looms. Some of these looms were available for outside weavers.
    1844: spinners were paid six shillings a week.
    1968: spinners employed at the Leri Mills in the 1830s and 1840s, using the same hand mule as is used today, were paid a piece rate wage, the average earnings being 10 shillings a week. Others were paid a fixed wage.
