Laxarby Old Mill

Welcome Power plant

Water Power Plant

When Laxarby Mill was built in 1869, the mill was driven by the water's power. The mill is closed down since long, but the power of the water is used also today – now to produce electricity. A small water power plant is housed in the basement of the mill. The electricity produced is put out to the public power grid and contributes to the local electricity supply.
