1901 map showing Penyllan Mill and the mill race going from the bridge over the river morda on Penyllan Lane. Note the weir slightly down stream from the bridge which would have given enough depth of water to come up to the level of the sluice gate. No remains of the weir now exist.

Good photo of the remains of the sluice gate at the head of the mill race next to the bridge on Penyllan Lane.
