Talgarth Watermill, Powys

Restored in 2011 as part of the BBC’s Village SOS TV programme, Talgarth Mill is a thriving community enterprise Talgarth Mill Exteriorin Talgarth in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

There’s something for everyone – you can take a guided tour with one of our volunteer guides and hear the full story of the watermill and its renovation. Alternatively you can wander round in your own time – there’s plenty to see and find out about. Children can even have a go at making their own stoneground flour using our hand-driven mill and learn about where flour and bread comes from.
