Discover Meliden

Walking links

Built to serve the mines and quarries in this scenic part of North Wales, the Prestatyn-Dyserth way was once a much-used railway line. At one time, this 2 ½ stretch between the hills and sea carried 16 passenger trains a day. After more than 100 years of service, the last train ran in 1973 and since then this old line has been become a haven for walkers and cyclists. More than 60,000 people a year walk, cycle, and run along this countryside route which is flanked by the National Trust-owned Graig Fawr and boasts outstanding views out across the North Wales coast. There are many places to join the walkway, from down in the pretty market town of Prestatyn or in the villages of Dyserth and Meliden, where Y Shed is based.

With views out over the Irish Sea, there are plenty of places along the line to take a seat, rest weary legs, and enjoy the view. On a clear day, the Isle of Mann, Blackpool, and the resort town of Llandudno can all be spotted in the distance and you’re never short of company with wildlife in abundance.
