Mills and Water Power in Glamorgan and Gwent

Southeast Wales has a rich heritage of medieval and post-medieval sites. Many of the larger, upstanding monuments have been designated scheduled ancient monuments, but the vast majority of sites have not been classified and the condition of most is unknown. These sites are vital to our understanding of the medieval and post-medieval periods.
The overall aim of this project was to use the Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust’s Historic Environment Record (GGAT HER), the National Monument Record (NMR) at the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW), secondary sources and field visits to assess the potential for enhancing the schedule of ancient monuments class of medieval and early post-medieval mills.

This report details the findings of the project and contains updated descriptions of all sites visited, with condition/significance information.
