This is our vision for the Machine Shop…turning it into the ‘engine room’ of our project.

Our theory is that the skills training we can facilitate in the back of the building can make the whole site work better: we can improve access, help the narrow gauge railway come to life, build some of the smaller new buildings we need (like vehicle garages for maintenance work on our Land Rovers), and so on. Meanwhile, the front will be available for us to try out loads of different things – a pop up restaurant one weekend, an indoor gig venue the next, and during the week a great space for school children to learn about our proud history in.

It’s a theory that we put to the BIG Lottery in September 2017, and in February this year we got the magic phone call to say we’d been awarded £1.1m to make this part of the overall project happen. It’ll be starting this Summer and open (with a new roof, new windows and toilets, kitchen and classroom) Spring 2019.

Like working in outside?

We have a new job vacancy at Brymbo Heritage – to help us maintain the grounds at Brymbo Enterprise Centre. The role involves working an average of 3 hours per week over the period April to October to mow the grassed areas, maintain the planted borders and potentially to help introduce extra planting.

The role is seasonal so will cease at the end of October.
