Plans have been unveiled to restore Black Pool Mill near Narberth. The 19th Century building is Grade 2* listed and was fully operational until the Second World War but has survived with a full set of machinery.
Bluestone resort wants to restore it to its Victorian prime. The flour mill sits within a Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC).
A public consultation gets underway today.
In consultation with some of the UK’s leading heritage, ecology and biodiversity experts, we have designed an ambitious restoration programme for the mill and its surrounding landscape, to preserve, manage and improve the site in its entirety.
Historic integrity runs through the very core of this project and we are proposing a thoughtful and sympathetic approach, enabling the architectural features of the past to shine through and offering visitors a rare opportunity to take a step into history.

A £5.8m scheme to generate energy from sea waves off the Pembrokeshire coast has been announced.
Wave-tricity will develop and test a new device called the Ocean Wave Rower backed by EU funding.
The Welsh Government says the project is the latest investment to help create a world-leading marine energy sector in Wales.
£12m has been committed to clean energy projects including Minesto’s Deep Green initiative, being developed in Anglesey, and Marine Power Solutions’ WaveSub technology which will also be deployed in Pembrokeshire waters.
Marine energy is an important sector and Wales has excellent natural resources which can be harnessed. I am delighted this investment will bring another significant energy project to Pembrokeshire.
It’s very encouraging that this scheme, which has such potential is being developed in Wales, particularly as it will lead to good employment and business opportunities in the local area.
An eight-foot long Swordfish, typically found in warm waters, has been found washed up on a west Wales beach.
The fish, estimated to weigh up to 200lbs, was spotted by a couple walking their dog on Freshwater East, Pembrokeshire.
John and Helen Swancott were taking an early morning walk on the sand when their rescue dog Toby ran into the water.
I couldn't believe there was a swordfish in our waters, it was amazing. It must be about 8ft long and weigh between 150 and 200lbs. I should have stood there with a fishing rod and blagged it as the biggest fish caught in Fresh East this century and had a photo taken - I would have been pinched by all the local fishing clubs!
Swordfish are typically found in places like the Indian and Pacific Oceans and the Mediterranean.
It is extremely rare for them to be spotted near Britain where temperatures are much cooler.
