Carew Tidal Mill

A short walk along a causeway from Carew Castle is a very well preserved mill that derived its power from the rise and fall of the tide.

Dating from about 1800, the Carew Tidal Mill was in use as recently as 1937.

Apart from the fascinating old machinery to see, there is an exhibition on the Story of Milling.

There is good car parking for the Mill and Castle, with a tarmac path round the mill pond to the mill with spectacular views of the castle.


Carew Castle and Tidal Mill are at the south end of the A4075 which runs from the A40 (between Narbeth and Haverfordwest) and the A477 (between Kilgetty and Pembroke). The castle is well signposted.
