Gwalia Yard is a community-led initiative that aims to help revive Cardigan’s struggling High Street. By providing a base for the town’s growing maker culture and a place for the community to gather on their own terms, the town’s already highly involved residents will regain ownership of their town centre as the heart of Cardigan’s daily life. Digital fabrication facilities and maker spaces will complement the existing preserved culture of heritage making present in the town, while also allowing the industry to develop into the 21st century. Gwalia Yard sits within a wider community-led masterplan that looks to revive the regional town as a centre for the county, providing much needed investment, employment opportunities, and re-enfranchisement to an otherwise neglected region of the UK.
