A restored watermill in the heart of the Brecon Beacons

Talgarth Mill

In the small market town of Talgarth, good, locally produced food is a top priority. In the very heart of the town is a community-run, water powered flour mill and traditional bakery. The Brecon Beacons National Park’s only working watermill.

The history of the mill

Our Story

The only working watermill in the Brecon Beacons National Park, Talgarth Mill is a hub for producing award-winning food with strong local provenance and a focus on supporting the local community and the environment. Great Taste Awards for our flour, bread and bread kits, reflect our passion for quality and creativity. Visit us and enjoy a feast of baked goods and see flour produced by waterpower.

2018 - Here we go...

2018 is off to an active start at the Mill. As a mill that uses water power, we welcome the rainy weather. Goodness knows we seem to have had more than our fair share and the rivers have been high. However, it hasn’t deterred an active start to the year!

4am Saturday morning is when I start the biggest bake of the week.
A baker’s life for me…….

Christmas and New year at Talgarth Mill
No two days......

I love the Mill; it’s so full of surprises. No two days are ever the same and invariably days don’t turn out the way I expect them to. I thought New Year’s Eve – a grey, wet day, would be quiet with no, or very few, visitors or volunteers. Wrong!
