Can't believe you got that Hugo!
Too clever.
Unfortunately it was today.
We have been walking in sea mist all day while hearing about the blue skies and sun in the rest of the UK. Maximum temperature here 13 degrees!

I take it that you took that photo after your stay at the Llangoed Hall, it's been a really warm sunny day up here in the north.

This working water wheel can be seen in action in North Wales but what is the name of the building where you can see it?

This one looks similar ?

Llandyfrydog Water Mill - Felin Esgob (Bishops Mill) on the Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn) in North Wales

This is what the mill looks like so it should be easy to name now

It's not in Anglesey but has it got any connection with the Island, beaumaris perhaps?

I was lucky to be able to see it as it hasn't been open for two years!

Was it open under the National Gardens Scheme, Hugo?

It might have been Dave so put me out of my misery and say the name of the Mill

Let's recap

The mill with the water wheel is not in Anglesey but it's name would not be out of place in Beaumaris

Hasn't been open for two years

Part of the National Garden Scheme perhaps?

So what's the name of the building?

Well done Hollins, it is the Bulkeley Mill in Rowen.

We were there on Sunday for the Rowen Open Gardens of 2018.   The event is for one day only and is held every two years.   The Mill is our favourite garden along with Oak Bank which is next door.  Both properties have beautiful gardens with a variety of shrubs and trees.

I should have guessed it, I was staying in the Bulkeley Hotel in Beaumaris only last weekend.  >:(
