Trefriw Woollen Mills

Water Powered Turbine

See the hydro-electric turbine dating from the 1940s which generates the electricity to power the mill. Some of the water in the river Crafnant is diverted into a pipe about 340 metres upstream. The water from the pipe turns the pelton wheel inside the turbine which drives the alternator. THE TURBINE HOUSE AND PART OF THE SHOP WILL BE CLOSED ON MONDAY 2ND &  TUESDAY 3RD OCTOBER FOR ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE TO BE CARRIED OUT.  WE APOLOGISE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

Certificate of Excellence!
