Anglesey has a rich and varied history, since the earliest settlers arrived around 7000BC. Incredibly, many signs of their inhabitation over the subsequent years can be seen today in the form of hill forts, burial mounds and standing stones. For thousands of years, human inhabitants of the island have benefited from the rich soil and, which led it to be Christened “Mon Mam Cymru”, which means “Mona the Mother of Wales” by Gerald of Wales in the 12th Century when the island of Anglesey was found to produce far more grain than any other part of Wales.

Anglesey, or Mona as it was known has historically been the homeland, or stronghold of the Druids. At the time of the Roman invasion of Britain, the Celtic tribes, and their Druids were gradually driven back to Anglesey before the Roman finally invaded.

Telford’s Menai Suspension Bridge provided more that just the first crossing of the Menai Straits, connecting Anglesey with the rest of Wales. It represented the final link in the route from London to Holyhead, connecting Ireland with the UK mainland. Find out more here
