The old public toilets in Green Lane built in 1936 and closed in the 1970's.

Romano who owned the Central Cafe at the time bought the toilets and later used them for storage. The new toilet block was built in the Car Park in the early 1970's and was further extended to its present size when the car park was extended around 2008

Statue of Owain Glyndwr  erected in 2005 replacing an earlier unpopular statue.

Old Fire Station in Green lane, built in 1912- now used as a storage unit.

Building started on the new Station in 1978.

As well as having five pubs in the town, a fish and chip shop and a kebab shop , Corwen has four cafes for thirsty travellers. Upon leaving the Carpark there is the recently opened 'TheTea Cosy'. Once in the square there is 'Yum Yums' which used to be the Greengocers now looking very chic with its pastel colours and outside seating. Nearby is 'Abul's Spice' Restaurant which used to be the Central Hotel. Further along the street is 'Caffi Treferwyn'. Next door to it is the long established Astleys Ironmongers (now closed) which seemed to sell everything you could think of. Note the GWR colour paintwork. The old work house now named Corwen Manor is  a craft centre, cafe, fishing tackle shop and a gift shop. Pethau Tlws is another new gift shop in the centre of town.

 

 Corwen Town looks forward to your visit .
