Typical day. My day in the South-West of Wales. Something new, something old and something woolly

Melin Tregwynt. Waterwheel and good coffee. Good start to a day

Yesterday and it was a jaunt to the south-west of Wales to help, advise and be nosey. first thing was over to Melin Tregwynt. (you might know them from the famous spotty woollen blankets and cushions) The mill is a neighbour of the National Trust and I popped in to have a chat about their options for energy efficiency as this mill is still operating. Lots of options and they have a working waterwheel…nice!

Treleddyd fawr having a full MOT. this will be something special when its finished in few months time

Then it was on to something even more special. Treleddyd Fawr is one of the last original Pembrokeshire cottages. The cottage was recently given to the NT and is resplendent with its limed roof and small sash windows. It’s currently being restored / conserved as a new National Trust holiday cottage. The level of detail is incredible as is the retention of as many of the original pieces of wood down to the restoration of the well and its recently found pump. looking forward to coming back to have a nosey. It even has a Ty Bach. (I will leave that one for you to research)

we are now up to number 34 in Wales. Chargers still going in across all the properties. Llanerchaeron's looking resplendant

On the way home I popped over to Llanerchaeron to again be nosy. The new Electric Vehicle charging point takes its place well in front of the visitor centre. Oh and also had a telephone conference about Tredegar house and so the day went one. See there is more to life than a hydro… but don’t tell anyone! Now back to the spreadsheets!
