Market hall renovated through Transforming Towns funding

A "vulnerable" market hall in south-west Wales has been renovated and brought back into active use. 

The grade II listed building was a key part of Llandeilo’s history before becoming disused and falling into a state of disrepair.

It was then placed on the ‘buildings at risk register’ having been classified as vulnerable in 2007.

Now, the market space has been renovated and revitalised by Carmarthenshire County Council with the hope of increasing employment opportunities and providing an event space. 

The renovation scheme was supported by £1.7 million of Welsh government Transforming Towns funding which included European Regional Development funding.

The Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning, Julie James, said: "It’s fantastic to see that through our Transforming Towns programme we’ve been able to support the renovation of Yr Hen Farchnad.

"This project has not only brought a disused, derelict building back into active use, but has created jobs, training opportunities and is now driving footfall from local people and visitors into the town centre."
