A VILLAGE railway shed is back on track for business success

Meliden's Y Shed – a community hub which provides space for up-and-coming businesses, artists, and crafters – had been open for just a few months when the Coronavirus pandemic forced it to temporarily close.

The converted old railway building, home to independent businesses, a shop, and café attracted thousands of visitors in its first few months.

The enforced closure was a blow for all at Y Shed, a project championed by charitable housing association Grŵp Cynefin and Meliden Residents Action group.

A COMMUNITY project hit by the Coronavirus pandemic has been given a welcome boost from The National Lottery Community Fund.

Meliden’s Y Shed project had been open for just nine months when the country went into lockdown.

The Grade II listed building, which had undergone a £1.2 million revamp after standing empty for years, is home to a café and four start-up businesses. All were forced to close, impacting the businesses, the project, and the community surrounding Y Shed.

Spearheaded by charitable housing association Grŵp Cynefin and Meliden Residents Action group, Y Shed had become a valuable part of village life.

A DERELICT old railway shed, transformed after a £1.2 million refurbishment, has been officially opened by a councillor who played in it as a boy.

Spearheaded by charitable housing association Grŵp Cynefin and Meliden Residents Action group, a former goods shed on the Prestatyn to Dyserth walkway has been redeveloped as a community hub.

In its heyday, Meliden’s goods shed was a key stopping place on the old railway line which served both the mining and tourist trades. Now, after a four-year project, the Grade II listed building is a space for up-and-coming businesses and artists and crafters. It also has an onsite café, heritage and meeting room.

BUILDING DUBBED ‘HISTORICAL FOOTNOTE’ STARTS NEW CHAPTER

In its heyday, Meliden’s goods shed was a key stopping place on the Dyserth to Prestatyn railway line serving both the mining and tourist trades. The shed, on the Dyserth and Prestatyn walkway, eventually closed in 1957 and reopened briefly over the years, notably as an undertaker and a taxi rank.

But now it has been brought back to life, putting the Grade II building firmly back into the heart of the village community.

Spearheaded by charitable housing association Grŵp Cynefin and Meliden Residents Action group, the building now provides opportunities for up-and-coming businesses, artists and crafters.
