Pontrhydygroes grew into an important village when it became the centre of the nineteenth-century Lisburne lead mines. The name means "bridge by the ford of the cross", indicating that the crossing point over the Ystwyth at the bottom of the village was also on the monks route. 

Recently the wheel has been reconstructed under a former project called "Ysbryd-y-mwynwyr - Spirit of the Miners" and can be visited by the public free of charge.
