Description

The Mills of Grwyne by Raymond Hawkins (2008)

The Grwyne valley, particularly about the villages of Llangenny and Glangrwyney, was an important area of water mills, initially for grain and wool but also driving an important forge near the river’s confluence with the Usk.

Then in the 18th and 19th centuries its reputation for paper-making was developed, finally coming to an end in 1950.

This account was written initially as a series of newspaper articles by the well-known local historian Raymond Hawkins (1905-1995) but has been edited and illustrated for publication by CDAC.
