Artist's Description

The impressive three-storeyed Pont y Pandy mill, also known as Ynysypandy and Nant y Pandy slate processing works, which served the Gorseddau Quarry about 2 miles away, was built in 1856-7 by Evan Jones of Garndolbenmaen

The slate mill was sited here due to lack of a suitable water supply at the quarry, a water wheel being used to operate the machinery. Pont y Pandy is an extraordinary building and looks more like a monastery than an industrial unit.
