This mill is also known as Melin Minffordd and Melin Maen Arthur (the name of a nearby hill). Nothing is known of its origin and it first appears in the historical records in 1883 when Robert Parry is listed as the miller in Slater's Directory. It continued to be run by Parrys until its closure sometime around World War I.
As is usual it deteriorated so that by 1929, when Rex Wailes surveyed mills in England and Wales, it had lost its cap, although the machinery and one sail were still in place. In the 1970s it was converted into a dwelling, as is seen now. When it was sold in 1982 the new owners found some of the old machinery. These were donated to the restorers of Melin Llynnon for use there.
