The owner of Mayhap Café was one of the first landlords on the high street to approach For Tyldesley regarding applying for grant funding to retain the historic architecture of the previously derelict night club on Chapel Street. The project involved restoration of the traditional historic shopfront, new pilasters, corbels and fascia alongside part funding the window repairs and replacements, upgrading them to double glazed to reduce the carbon footprint, retain the ornate original features and frame the views across Top Chapel to the Market Square.
Mayhap Café is now a thriving speciality coffee house, on the ground floor, serving an incredible range of coffees, cakes, pastries and brunch options. The first floor consists of two one-bedroom high spec duplex apartments with amazing views over the Cheshire plain. It is now one of the main attractions in the town and has helped increase footfall into Tyldesley from further afield.
Ian Tomlinson, For Tyldesley Community Engagement Manager said ‘this project is a perfect example of what we are trying to achieve in Tyldesley. Bringing a vacant property back into use, providing residential accommodation and creating new jobs for local people. We hope that such projects will provide a great retail and leisure experience, that in turn, will improve the footfall and dwell time in the conservation area. We wish him good luck in his new venture’.
We opened Redemption Coffee & Kitchen in January 2022 and after all the hard work we have put in it's been a very frustrating couple of weeks. Onwards and upwards ✌️ #brunch#coffee#indipendent#manchester
