Frank's Cafe - 121 Elliott Street.

You may remember it as Frank’s Chippy, you may even remember it as Melias Ltd Food Distributors, but For Tyldesley have transformed the former chippy on Elliott Street and Lime Street and reinstated its historic shopfront. It’s such an iconic building on the high street, and we’re delighted it’s been externally transformed and making a positive contribution to the thriving town centre of Tyldesley.  

The works to Frank’s Chippy involved asbestos removal, repair and reinstatement of historic details to the shopfront to 121 Elliott Street, structural alterations and installation of a new shopfront to Lime Street, external repair works and internal works to the rear of 121 Elliott Street and the entrance to 30 Lime Street to create a new stairwell to the first floor flat. The works to the HAZ Office included, asbestos removal, installation of a new shopfront including provision of ramped access, new metal security gates, external repair work and internal works to create the HAZ Office including the installation of a disabled WC.  

The former chippy is to be used as a retail unit downstairs and residential apartments upstairs. The attached HAZ office is used as For Tyldesley’s base and welcomes anyone who has any questions about the HAZ scheme or generally about the high street. Please feel free to drop by and say hello!  

The building is now up and functioning and is looking like it is set to be rented out to a restaurant owner. What cuisine would you like to see on Tyldesley High Street?
