The Llangollen and Corwen Railway was formed as a continuation of the Vale of Llangollen Railway to continue the line along the Dee Valley from Llangollen a further 9 miles 50 chains (15.5 km) to Corwen. The line and all stations were opened on 1 May 1865. Subsequently absorbed into the Cambrian Railways system, it became part of the Great Western Railway and subsequently on nationalisation the Western Region of British Railways.
Passenger services were suspended from 14 December 1964 following flood damage, and officially closed to passengers on Monday 18 January 1965. It has since been restored and reopened in 1986 as an intermediate station on the preserved Llangollen Railway.
Just to the west of Berwyn Station lies Berwyn Tunnel, which at 689 yards (630 m) long presently makes it the longest single-bore tunnel and third longest tunnel on a UK Heritage Railway.
