The Shop and Cafe
History of Siop Plas
Siop Plas was built in the 1920s by Thomas John Jones’ family, and it remained open until the 1980s. The shop supplied the local residents for many years, and many of them remember when it was at its most successful. In reality, it was more than just a shop; it was a meeting place for many of Anelog’s Residents and an important social hub for the area. Our goal is for the shop to be a vibrant and sustainable hub for the community once more. A traditional zink shed, although the shell is new the woodwork on the inside is original and has retained the atmosphere of a traditional countryside shop.
