Caerhun War Memorial


The Caerhun War Memorial commemorates those men of the area who were killed during World War I and World War II.  The memorial is adjacent to the "Red Lion", Tyn-y-Groes.

Caerhun is a scattered rural community on the west bank of the River Conwy, in the County Borough of Conwy.  Until 1974 the area was part of historic Caernarfonshire,  and between 1974 and 1996 part of the county of Gwynedd.  In 1996, Caerhun became part of the newly-formed county borough of Conwy.
