Wern corn mill

Walking north along the Montgomery Canal from Welshpool we came to Wern after five miles. This is the site of Wern Corn Mill, by Red Bridge 106, which was powered from the water which collected in the sump pound. Every time a lock emptied there'd be another 25,000 gallons of water to drive the wheel.

There's not a huge amount still to be seen. Water bubbles up in an interesting way...

... and then flows away, its job done.
