Llywernog Mine and the 55 ft L & G Howells “Gawns” wheel

(extract from our old website – last shown in 2005 – from a visit to Llywernog in 2003)

Shown here are parts of the `Gawns Wheel’ , currently awaiting restoration at the Silver and Lead mine museum at Llywernog near Aberystwyth.

The makers mark, L & G Howell, can just be made out on some of the wheel sections
