The Bangor-class minesweepers' were a class of minesweepers operated by the Royal Navy (RN), Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and Royal Indian Navy (RIN) during World War II.

The class derives its name from the lead ship, , launched on 19 February 1940 and commissioned on 7 November 1940. Royal Navy ships were named after coastal towns of the United Kingdommarker

Their small size gave them poor sea handling abilities, reportedly worse even than the Flower class corvettes. The diesel-engined versions were considered to have poorer handling characteristics than the slow-speed reciprocating-engined versions. Their shallow draft made them unstable and their short hulls tended to bury the bow when operating in a head sea.

The Bangor-class vessels were also considered crowded, cramming over 90 enlisted sailors and 6 officers into a vessel originally intended for a total of 40 officers and sailors.

The Australian Bathurst class corvettes were based on the Bangor design.

Design and development

The original intent of the Bangor-class minesweeper design was to provide a coastal equivalent of the Halcyon-class minesweeper, however the realities brought to light by the start of the war caused a modification of the design before construction started.

The need for fast construction coupled with the limitations of engineering resources resulted in several variations existing based on the availability of propulsion machinery. They all had twin screws, but the machinery was a mix of steam turbine, slow-speed steam reciprocating, high-speed steam reciprocating, and diesel. The diesel powered examples were about 20 feet (6 m) shorter than the rest as they had no need for boiler rooms. Displacement varied with propulsion machinery from 590 to 672 tons.The reciprocating engine powered Bangors were also known as the Blyth class and the steam turbined ones as the Ardrossan class.
