I suspect you are referring to Blackpool Mill at Canaston Bridge.
That is the only recorded Iron Forge in the area.
It closed as an Iron Forge in 1806 and a new Corn Grist Mill was built in 1813.
It was owned by the Barlow Family of Slebech and there are numerous references in the
Slebech Catalogue at the NLW.

then type in Slebech in the search box. You also search
for Grigg in the NLW Catalogue.
I doubt if your ancestor built it, but he may have constructed or repaired the Wheel and
other working parts.

Subject: [Dyfed] Minnwear, Pembrokeshire. GRIGG
I am researching my family name GRIGG - my 3xg.grandfather was a Mill Wright and
designed and built the steel mill in this little hamlet. I have been there and seen the
which quite honestly "blew" my away - I was so proud that an ancestor of mine
was responsible for this. I was wondering if there was anyone on line that knows the
history of Minnwear (hope this is the right spelling) and the building of this mill. I
also found out that 3xg.grandfather married a young lady from this hamlet, so I am
wondering if anyone could give me more information on the lady and family. Unfortunately I
do not know her Christian name or
Minnwear is such a pretty place I am glad I have seen it.
Any help would be much appreciated.
