Former corn mill now destroyed (Houghton-Browne, A 1977).

The manor of Talerddig or Tirymynach was a grange of the Abbey of Strata Marcella and it is tempting to suggest that the mill there owed its origins to monastic development. After the Dissolution, Nicholas Purcell of Dinthill claimed the manor and in 1587 the inquisition post mortem on his son Richard found him to be possessed of the water corn mill there (MR 1911, 343). Later, the mill came into the estate of Sir William Watkins Wynn (T 1839). In 1810 a Sunday School was started at Talerddig 'where the mill floor was allowed to be used for this purpose' (R. Williams, Montgomeryshire Collections 19 (1886), 342). The site was adjacent to Talerddig Farm but the mill no longer exists (Barton, P G, 1999, 54).
