Y Shed

Y Shed holds the stories of generations. At the heart of Meliden, near Prestatyn, this old stone building has stood guardian over the village, originally serving the railway line which, for over 100 years, ran behind it. Now a hub with café and shop and interactive history exhibition it offers creative working and exhibition spaces for businesses and artisans.


Y Shed has had a rich and varied history and for decades, it was derelict. Now, championed by Grŵp Cynefin and Meliden Residents’ Action Group, its future is very different.

This forgotten building has been transformed into a vibrant community and tourist hub with café, shop, history displays, a place where walkers can stop for refreshments, or families and friends can meet for lunch. The history exhibition showcases the village and its stories to new generations, shining a light on the life of Meliden residents through the years. Y Shed is also helping budding entrepreneurs and artists develop their businesses from unique, glass-fronted spaces looking out over an inspiring coastal setting.
