Visited with the mrs, really chilled out explore, nice day out in the country. Possibly one of the coolest places I have explored it amazes me all this is still there.

We visited the lower mill on the river, the top ones were doable but we walked around them and to be fair they were just bollocksed so could'nt be bothered with them and they didnt look too interesting. The top one in the village was pretty awesome too but the mrs was getting fed up by this point so that was a quick in and out.

History

Leri Mills was one of Ceredigions first woolen mills. It was built from around 1809 consisting of several buildings; two tweed mills, a spinning and carding shed, a wool / washing shed, a dye shed and a craft shop.

Initially the tweed was sold locally to farmers and miners but for at least the last thirty years of operation the mill was open to the public, with demonstrations of all of the processes on view, and most importantly a shop that sold tweed, garthen (a tapestry used as a bed covering), rugs and postcards.

The rise of foreign travel in the late seventies led to a fairly rapid decline in business

Sadly the mill finally stopped trading in April 1981 and was initially put on the market for £150,000.
A buyer wasn't found and the mill remains in the family that ran it from at least 1950.
