A View of Salmon Leap, at Kenarth, Caemarthan
Artist: Hassell, John
View of the Salmon leap at Cenarth in Carmarthenshire, Wales. The village of Cenarth is situated between Carmarthen and Cardigan on the banks of the River Teifi or Teivy. The area is well known for the falls which cascade over rocks and boulders forming one of the few natural salmon leap in Wales. The building to the right of the picture is a 17th century flour mill. It had a timber and cast iron wheel which drove two pairs of stones, one for barley and the other for oats. This mill was actually still in use until 1964.
