Grŵp Cynefin, Ysgol Melyd & Y Shed: Intergenerational Project

About Y Shed

A project spearheaded by charitable housing association Grŵp Cynefin and Meliden Residents’ Action Group, Y Shed will see a derelict, railway goods shed in Meliden, Prestatyn, transformed into a community asset.

The project, which has been granted Lottery funding, involves turning the empty building into a hub for the local community, offering volunteering, enterprise, employment and learning opportunities within a building that is contemporary whilst keeping its original features.

Included in Y Shed will be:

  • A first-floor cafe with 48 internal and 52 external covers
  • A commercial kitchen - used by the cafe but also available for local residents to develop and prepare their own produce for sale
  • Heritage Centre – two time tunnels and heritage interpretation as a background to the cafe facility
  • Workshops/business spaces for local artisans - located in individually designed shipping containers adjacent to the building and designed to enable visitors to watch crafts people at work
  • Bike hire facility with potential for other outdoor activities – Nordic walking etc
  • Community allotments and orchard on land adjacent to the building belonging to Denbighshire County Council
  • Community shop as a background to the cafe facility - an opportunity for artisans and residents to test trade

Y Shed is set within a beautiful location at the side of the old Prestatyn to Dyserth railway line, now a pedestrian path with a recorded 60,000 users per annum. This cross-sector partnership project presents a coherent and innovative way to provide an economical sustainable community hub offering an array of
opportunities and experiences for the residents of Meliden and beyond.
