1913 – 1986 – North East Wales Miners Rescue

1987 – 2008 – North Wales Fire Brigade

From 2009, the building was neglected, attacked and damaged by the previous owner.

Since 2019, the Wrexham Miners Project has been working hard to save the building, bringing 40% of it back to use. It houses a café, Museum, an Arts and Events space and a memorial wall in remembrance of the 266 miners who died in the Gresford Colliery Disaster on 22nd September 1934.

Our team of volunteers continue to work on the restoration of our building every single day. We have raised in excess of £500,000 (including the purchase of the building) and the building is already proving a vital resource for adults with learning difficulties, families who need our support and to the wider local community .

Without your support, the building will close. We need your support now more than ever – please head over to our support page to see how you can help or click on the donate button.
