Can you believe that this fine example of an 1850s surface wheel is still intact?! The walk in the Welsh hills to Cwm Ciprwth Copper Mine rewards you with these surface remains. The horizontal flat rods are also still there along with the angle bob with balance weight over the shaft. This wheel also has a winding drum attached, so it pumped and pulled!
You'll be astonished when you find out where the waterwheel was forged!
