Trefriw Woollen Mill pt 2

After we'd done the tour of the mill we went to the turbine house.

When you walk in the door your greeted with this loom which unfortunately wasn't being operated the day we went :( 

A closer look at the bedspread being woven

On the wall behind the loom is an array of samples from over the years

Believe it or not this turbine was running

Each one of these straps runs a piece of machinery in the mill

The pump that controls the flow of water

And lastly the Weavers Garden that you see as you arrive and as you leave.
Every one of the plants in can be used in some way in the production of cloth.
