Former village shop to re-open as beauty salon

A former village Co-op store which had stood empty for years has been given a new lease of life.

The historic building in Station Road, Steeton, has been transformed into a beauty and massage salon.

And many of the original features from the premises have been preserved.

The building served as the Co-op from the early 20th century until the 1960s, after which it had numerous uses ranging from offices to a hairdressers.

It had stood derelict for about seven years until opening in its new guise, as The Beauty Nest.

Owner Christine Wilson, who lives in Steeton, said: “Before I bought the building it had got into a very bad state of disrepair and looked unsightly.

“I believe I’ve restored it to a very high standard and I have taken a great deal of effort to preserve its character in accordance with the conservation area.

“The front windows have been changed but I have the original old Co-op window, which I will restore and display, and have kept original features including stonework.”

Miss Wilson, 29, worked from a rented room at Burley-in-Wharfedale before taking on the new premises.
