Information

The pandy, or fulling mill, at Tregarth dates back to the 18th century. Fulling was a finishing process in the production of cloth in which woven cloth was cleansed, thickened and strengthened. This involved washing to remove dirt and grease and kneading with wooden hammers to mat together the wool fibres.
