Melin Hermon (Tyddyn Olifer)
Like Melin Newydd, this mill was on the Bodorgan Estate and built by the Meyrick family. According to the diary of William Bulkeley, another prominent Anglesey landowner, the building of the mill was begun on 8 May 1743, making it the first windmill owned by the Meyricks.
In the 1880s the mill was sold to John Griffith, who owned a watermill in the area. He died in 1909 and the mill passed to his sons. The mill ceased operating around this time and was eventually roofed with corrugated iron and used for hay storage. The tower still seems in good condition, although currently roofless, and could be a candidate for renovation in the future.
