The Cambrian factory was the largest woollen mill in the Llanidloes area, employing some 250 workers at its peak. Built in 1852 on the banks of the River Clywedog, it was reduced to an empty shell by a disastrous fire in November 1889. The drying racks or tenters seen on the slope behind the building were used to support the long strips of manufactured flannel.
