Llandudno war memorial

This memorial takes the form of a tall obelisk, on the landward side of the promenade. It is positioned on the axis created by Gloddaeth Street, the wide road running from the west to north shores. Anyone looking northwards along the street can see the memorial in the distance.

The memorial was designed by architect Sidney Colwyn Foulkes, who was based in Colwyn Bay and designed many of the area’s finest buildings of the early 20th century. The memorial was creaphoto_of_london_welsh_at _llandudnoted in 1922, to commemorate the local people who died in the First World War. The names of people who died in the Second World War were added later.
