Melin Llynnon, or Llynnon Mill, is a gristmill located on the outskirts of the village of Llanddeusant on the island of Anglesey. It is the only surviving working windmill in Wales.

The mill was built for £550 in 1775 and was used to drive machines for grinding corn, oats and barley. Damaged by a storm in 1918, it remained deserted and unused until the local council restored it between 1978 and 1986.
