52/2012 Week 14

The church viewed from the graveyard

Meliden (Welsh: Gallt Melyd) is a village between Prestatyn and Dyserth in Denbighshire, Wales. It grew up around the locality of lead mines and limestone quarries. The placename “Meliden” has variously been claimed to be derived from that of Bishop Melitus or St. Melyd (the village has the church of St. Melyd as its main place of worship); its Welsh placename, “Gallt Melyd”, means “wooded hill of Melyd”
