Great Wars Trail

A public air raid shelter still stands in Ward Park, a reminder of one of the raids on the town. Nearby Bangor Golf Club has a print of James Beadle's historic painting of the attack at the Battle of the Somme by the 36th (Ulster) Division on 1 July 1916; it was damaged by shrapnel from a German bomb dropped on the night of 15 April 1941 (the night of a major bombing raid on Belfast). A Second World War pill box can also be found on the course.
