Y Felinheli clock tower before works © Y Felinheli Community Council 2015Y Felinheli war memorial stands outside Church House on Stryd Bangor. It is a freestanding clock tower commemorating the fallen of World War I and II. It is listed at Grade II.  

In 2016, a grant from War Memorials Trust Grants Scheme was offered £1,760 alongside an award from Cadw. This supported repair and conservation works to the tower including scaffolding, raking out joints and re-pointing. The clock face was repaired whilst the timber was also treated. To protect the metal elements of the memorial SmartWater was applied as part of the In Memoriam 2014 initiative.

The decision on the form of Y Felinheli's war memorial took 8 year following the end of the war to be made as the village was split between a clock tower and hall.
