An Ammanford church is getting a £117,000 lottery grant to restore a World War One memorial clock tower.

Grade II-listed All Saints' Church is one of three churches getting grant money from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Mathry Church near Haverfordwest, which is on the pilgrimage trail to St Davids Cathedral, has been awarded £87,000 to repair the nave.

The grade II-listed St Michael's Parish Church in Abergele will get £71,000 to stabilise its west tower.

All Saints' Church added the clock tower in 1926 in memory of the men who died in the war.

Alex Glanville, head of property services for the Church in Wales, said: "Grants like this are a real boost to our dedicated parishioners who work tirelessly all the year round to look after them and ensure they can be enjoyed now and by future generations."

Head of Heritage Lottery Fund Wales, Jennifer Stewart, added: "This money will pay for urgent repairs, whilst also helping to tell the stories of these special places to visitors."
