At present Denbigh is the terminus of the “Vale of Clwydd Railway,” which joins the Chester and Holyhead at Rhyl, but an extension to Corwen is in course of construction. The station is built of limestone, with limestone quoins, copings, and corbels. The doors, windows, and chimneys caps being of freestone. The arches are of brick with limestone facings and abutments. The architects are Messrs. Lloyd Williams and Underwood, Denbigh. The builders (for station only), Messrs. Burnsley and Sons, Birmingham, the Company’s workmen executing the arches.”
