£2.5m Martletwy Blackpool Mill plan 'exciting prospect'

A Grade II*-listed 19th Century flour mill could be turned into a Victorian-themed attraction.

The nearby Bluestone resorts has submitted plans to restore Blackpool Mill in Martletwy, Pembrokeshire.

A public consultation was launched on Monday on the proposal, which includes a milling experience, Victorian tea room and narrow gauge steam railway.

Bluestone said, if approved, it could create 60 jobs and open in spring 2018.

Keith Lewis, deputy leader Pembrokeshire council, said the plans offered an "exciting tourism prospect".
