Artist's Description

Carew Tidal Mill

Carew Mill is the only intact tidal mill in Wales and one of only four in Britain. While its precise date pf origin is uncertain, documentary evidence indicates a mill of some kind was here in 1542. The first reference to a causeway comes in a commission of 1630, indicating that Sir John Carew had restored the floodgates and causeway walls some 15 years earlier.

The present building dates from the early 19th century and indeed one of the two mill wheels carries the date 1801. The mill has also often been referred to as the “French Mill”, which may be a reference to the use of French burr grinding stones or to its French inspired design.
