The last image shows the ruins of what i believe to be llanerchearon Mill. The littlw wooden door faces over what was the rear of the original cob building. wheel gearing to the main water wheel further down therace was housed on this end. Like Pant Y Barcud in Carmarthenshire , the Main Water wheel drove the gearing from lower down & was housed on a seperate stone building at the top of the Mill Race. Now badly fallen into dereliction. A later brick building can be seen around the cob gable which must have been added a century or so later. The gate to the long leat can still be seen clearly from the bank of the river on the railway walk at Llanerchearon.
