Rhyl Train Station receives a makeover.

Case Study

Rhyl Train Station has recently undergone considerable cosmetic improvements to its footbridge and canopies, the windows for which have been manufactured by Parry Joinery. This classic Victorian railway station, which is one of the original 14 intermediate stations on the Chester to Holyhead line, was a key catalyst for Rhyl’s development as a tourist town in the nineteenth Century.

As a result of the recent investments to the property, we were responsible for manufacturing and supplying both the fixed and the opening windows on the footbridge which were constructed to match the original designs as much as possible. These came in a range of sizes and specifications which included fixed square and angled fixed window sashes split into equal panes with vertical glazing bars. These were constructed with vac-vac treated 5th redwood softwood for the top rails, stiles and vertical mullions and Sapele hardwood for the bottom rails, beads, corner cover pieces and separate cill sections.

Rhyl railway station was built in 1848 and is a grade II listed building found within the town’s conservation area. The grade II listing status considers the building to be of national importance that is protected from being demolished, extended or significantly altered without special permission from the local planning authority. The work carried out by Parry Joinery on this historic building is a testament to the regard with which Parry Joinery are viewed not only locally but throughout the North Wales and North West region. It is also a further example of the success we have achieved in undertaking sympathetic heritage joinery projects.

The images of the work carried out can be viewed below, both before and after their installation. If you have a historic building that requires a sympathetic joinery upgrade please contact our estimating department on 01244 371571 or email enquiries@parryjoinery.co.uk.
