Pictures of the Miller Memorial at Penmaenuchaf, Penmaenpool


Comprising of an inscribed slate plaque on a stone mill wheel, the Miller Memorial is located at the "picnic spot" on the Walkers Welcome path through the Penmaenuchaf woods. Its location at the picnic spot on a rocky cliffe provides an excellent vantage point of the Mawddach Estuary and the mountain ranges in the north.

The stone mill wheel is one of a pair; the other being located in the top garden at Penmaenuchaf Hall. I am told that the two mill wheels, which are just within sight of one another, were laid as a tribute to the two Wynne-Jones boys of Penmaenuchaf who were both killed in World War II.
