Colwyn Bay War Memorial

Colwyn Bay

Bae Colwyn

The Colwyn Bay War Memorial commemorates those men and women of the area who died during World War I, World War II and the Korean War.

The memorial, in the form of a soldier standing on a stone plinth, was sculpted by John Cassidy. It was erected at the front of the original Colwyn Bay Town Hall and unveiled on Saturday November 11th 1922.
When the Town Hall was demolished in 1964, the Memorial was moved nearby to Rydal Gardens, which have now been renamed Queen's Gardens.

Colwyn Bay is a seaside town in the County Borough of Conwy. Until 1974 the area was part of historic Denbighshire, and between 1974 and 1996 of the county of Clwyd.
