Curious Developers Turned Detective After Discovering A Slice Of Victorian History Within A Rundown Railway Shed

Builders working on the former Meliden goods shed on the Prestatyn to Dyserth walkway got more than they bargained for when they began taking up the old floor. Hidden underneath were perfectly preserved old glass drinking bottles.

Keen to know more about their find, charitable housing association Grŵp Cynefin, the organisation working with Meliden Residents Action Group to transform the old shed, showed the bottles to Rhyl History Club.

It was revealed that one of the bottles was 123 years old with the others dating back 85 years. All originated from nearby Rhyl. It is believed the bottles may have been left behind by workers or passengers at the old goods shed which is currently being transformed into a community hub with café, history tunnels, and artisan units.
