The historic Jennings Building, on the seafront at Porthcawl, has reopened after a £2.5m refurbishment.
Built in 1832, the Jennings Building was originally constructed as the southern terminus of the Dyffryn Llynfi Porthcawl horse-drawn tram road, which was used to transport iron and coal from the Llynfi Valley, and was more recently used as an indoor skatepark.
