Report - Felin Geri Watermill

8-page report entitled, "Felin Geri. A twin water wheel driven corn and saw mill at Cwm Cou, Newcastle Emlyn, Wales. Owner: Duncan L. Fitzwilliam Esq." The report gives a general description of the mill, its history and location then summarises the findings of an inspection carried out by John Fairbanks, millwright, in 1973. Fairbanks asked David Nicholls (then working for F. Ingram Smith Ltd) to write the survey and report in December 1973. This identified "very serious defects" in the building, the total cost of the recommended restoration scheme being £12,500 with the work being completed over a period of 4 months.
Also, 2 letters regarding arrangements for the presentation of European Architectural Heritage Year Awards 1975 by HRH the Prince of Wales at Monmouth on 14 July 1975, together with a list of winners (including Felin Geri).
