Work starts on £1.2m railway revamp project

BUILDING work has started on a new £1.2 community hub and tourist attraction in a North Wales village.

Over the next 12 months, an abandoned goods’ shed on the old railway line at Meliden, near Prestatyn, will undergo a 21st-century transformation.

Charitable housing association Grŵp Cynefin and Meliden Residents’ Action Group are behind the revamp of the Grade II listed building on the Prestatyn to Dyserth walkway.

A community and tourist hub complete with shop, café, heritage centre, bike hire facility, allotments, time tunnel and artists’ workshops will be created, breathing new life into the building and creating jobs, volunteering opportunities and an outlet for budding artists to showcase their talents.

Mair Edwards, Community Initiatives Manager at Grŵp Cynefin, said: “For 12 years, Meliden Residents’ Action Group has worked tirelessly to see this old shed restored.

“Not only will this be a development which supports the village but it will be invaluable for the 60,000 people - walkers, cyclists, and families - who use the walkway every year, making the building a tourist facility too.
