Charles Dickens, the famous 19th century novelist, visited yet another church and established a fund for a memorial which still stands today, in memory of over 400 lives that were lost in one of the most devastating shipwrecks, the Royal Charter, off the North East coast of Anglesey in 1859.
Anglesey has a wealth of historic interest; there are sites of iron age forts, bronze age villages, burial mounds and standing stones of our ancient ancestors.
