CONWY AND THE GREAT WAR

‘Conwy and the Great War’ is a Menter Iaith Conwy project largely funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund which has been researching the various ways in which the rural area of Conwy county was affected by the First World War. These vary from the stories of individuals to the bigger picture; exploring the effect on the Welsh language and the parishes’ social dynamics, as well as attempting to provide an insight as to what kinds of communities were they in terms of culture and outlook a century ago.

The aim of the project is to combine existing research with extensive new research to create a travelling exhibition, a book, a drama production — and this website.

The research and collecting information is still on-going, you are more than welcome to get in touch if you wish to contribute anything to the site.
