|Saw Mill at Maenofferen Slate Quarry|
The saw mill, which developed over four separate phases, is the largest building in the Maeofferen complex. A waterwheel in the centre of the left hand bay was fed by a launder carried on stone piers which can still be seen to the left side of the photograph. Beyond the mill to the right can be seen the caban, while to the left two rows of concrete piers are what remain of an uncompleted building.
