Water Powered Turbine

Our water powered turbine can be viewed during shop hours. It dates from the 1940s and 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.
