Built in the 19th century. In use till World War II , with wind till 1930. The milhouse is an independent holiday-home for self-catering. The mill is an impressing old building with walls that partly are 1.25 m thick. Like most of the other houses instead of a house number, the millhouse has its own name: `Il-Mithna´. The millhouse is located exactly opposite the small museum “Antique Engines and Vintage Machines”, roughly 20 m away from the street. There some old mill stones outside. Vicky Azzopardi actually was rased in that house and she told ( 2015) that it had 3 street numbers 113 , 114 , 115.
