Town of Colwyn Bay
Colwyn Bay (in Welsh: Bae Colwyn) is a seaside resort, with a population of about 29,000, on the coast of North Wales, about 50 miles west of Liverpool and 5 miles south-east of Llandudno.
Until 1974, Colwyn Bay formed the municipal borough of Colwyn Bay in the county of Denbighshire. From 1974 until 1996, it was part of the district of Colwyn in the then newly-formed county of Clwyd. In 1996, Clwyd was abolished as an administrative county and the district of Colwyn was merged into the new county borough of Conwy, a unitary authority (within the ceremonial, or preserved, county of Clwyd).
Colwyn Bay Jewish Community
The small Jewish community in Colwyn Bay was closely associated with that in Llandudno, some six miles away. For some years before the synagogue closed in the 1970s, some religious services alternating between the two synagogues. The synagogue in Llandudno now serves both towns.
