A DERELICT old railway shed destined to be consigned to history has opened its doors after a £1.2 million revamp.

In its heyday, Meliden’s goods shed was a key stopping place on the Dyserth to Prestatyn railway line serving both the mining and tourist trades. The shed, on the Dyserth and Prestatyn walkway, eventually closed in 1957 and reopened briefly over the years, notably as an undertaker and a taxi rank.

But now it has been brought back to life, putting the Grade II building firmly back into the heart of the village community.

Spearheaded by charitable housing association Grŵp Cynefin and Meliden Residents Action group, the building now provides opportunities for up-and-coming businesses, artists and crafters.

Mair Edwards, Grŵp Cynefin’s community initiatives manager, said: “The response to Y Shed has been phenomenal. It is beyond anything we could have hoped for. The aim was always to find a way to ensure this old building worked for the community. Having stood empty for so long, transforming the goods shed in a way which brings it up-to-date but also acknowledges Meliden’s rich and varied history is a real achievement.
