Meliden is a small village in Denbighshire, North Wales. It is bordered by Prestatyn to the north, Dyserth to the south, Gwaenysgor to the east and Rhyl to the west. Nearby towns and villages include Abergele, Colwyn Bay, Rhuddlan, Towyn, Llanasa, Trelawnyd and Talacre.
A spectacular waterfall can be found in nearby Dyserth. The river Ffyddion, a tributary of the Clwyd, flows through the village and falls over a 70ft ledge, creating the waterfall. During the early 19th century, mines were opened up around the village and water was diverted towards them, causing the waterfall to dry up. With the closure of the mines in 1884, the waterfall was back in full flow and has remained a popular tourist attraction ever since.....
