Anglesey in 50 Buildings

Availability: In stock

Author: Warren Kovach

The Isle of Anglesey is treasured for its natural beauty by visitors and residents alike, but it is also the home of a wide range of interesting and striking historic buildings. Local author Warren Kovach, founder of the Anglesey History website, takes you down the 400 steps to the South Stack lighthouse, teaches you how to pronounce the name of that famously unpronounceable railway station, introduces you to the philanthropist Sir John Prichard Jones, who built a library and charitable institute in his home village, pausing only for refreshments at the Ship Inn at Red Wharf Bay.

From ancient castles and an Iron Age village, through medieval manor houses and Victorian industrial works, to an architecturally modern church and a new factory harvesting the salt of the sea, Anglesey in 50 Buildings guides you around the island's history through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures.
