Victorian Mill House

This week Charlie meets Susan and Gerald Hamer who have a real thirst for adventure! They’ve travelled the world twice and have lived and worked abroad for most of their lives, but Wales has always been the home they’ve come back to. 

This will be a restoration of extraordinary scale as the building lies on the banks of the River Severn in Llanidloes, Mid Wales.

A former industrial workhouse, dating back to 1180, and a building which milled corn until 1914, this will be no easy challenge and injecting new life into this historic mill will present many structural and physical problems.

Gerald and Susan are planning to totally rebuild this relic and have set themselves a timescale of just over a year and a budget of £350,000 and for a building which is over 200 years old and is situated right next to a raging river, Gerald and Susan will soon discover the financial implications of taking on such a build.

They’ll have to deal with unexpected structural discoveries, torrential weather disturbances and ever mounting costs to keep this build on track and on time!
