View of Nant Corn Mill, in Carmarthenshire, Wales. The mill is situated on the River Clywedog near to the village of Coedpoeth. The majority of the corn mills built in Wales in the 18th century were small and would have had only two sets of working millstones- one for grinding flour for human consumption and the mother for animal food. Farmers would take sacks of corn to the mill to be ground but because of the damp Welsh climate much of the corn had to be dried before this could take place. Corn was dried in a drying kiln housed in a separate building. The drying house at Nash Mills can be seen to the left of this picture.
