The small village of Pont-Tyweli just over the river Teifi from Llandysul, takes its name from the river Tyweli a tributary to the Teifi. Pont-Tyweli was the home of Llandysul Railway Station and Llandysul Mart and is now the home of Llandysul Paddlers. There were at least three mills in Pont-Tyweli using the Teifi and Tyweli to create electricity.
The Powerhouse was built between 1921-1929. Three turbines were used to generate electricity from the River Teifi for Llandysul and Pont-Tyweli. The Powerhouse was not used from 1948 to the 1980s until a group of like-minded people from the communities of Llandysul and Pont Tweli started using the Powerhouse as a Community Centre and the Arts Centre.
