Meliden railway station was a station that served the mining village of Meliden Flintshire (now Denbighshire) on the Dyserth branch line. It was used as a way of shipping minerals from the nearby quarries at Dyserth to Prestatyn. The branch line to Dyserth was opened by the LNWR in 1869, initially for mineral traffic only. A passenger service was instituted in 1905 but lasted only until 1930, when it was withdrawn by the LMS. The line remained open to serve a quarry at Dyserth until complete closure in 1973. After closure the Prestatyn to Dyserth railway has since become a nature walk.
