Isle of Anglesey County Including Gwynedd County and Historic Anglesey County

(Welsh: Sir Ynys Môn) Formerly Gwynedd, the Local Government (Wales) Act 1994 restored Anglesey as a unitary authority county effective April 1, 1996. It is an island off the north-west coast of Wales. Anglesey, Holy Island and other smaller islands now make up the Isle of Anglesey County.

It is the largest island in Wales and the seventh largest in the British Isles. Two bridges span the Menai Strait, connecting it to the mainland: the Menai Suspension Bridge designed by Thomas Telford in 1826 and the Britannia Bridge.

Gwynedd - 1974-1996

Under the Local Government (Wales) Act 1972 effective April 1, 1974 historic Anglesey County was abolished in favor of newly formed Gwynedd County. The Local Government (Wales) Act 1994 effective April 1, 1996 abolished Gwynedd County and Isle of Anglesey County was formed.

Historic Anglesey County Until 1974

Anglesey was one of the thirteen historic counties of Wales. It was created a county under the terms of the Statute of Rhuddian in 1284 and consisted of the cantrefi (hundreds) of Aberffraw, Rhosyr and Cemais.
