Pwllfanogl

By Ffynnoncadno  
Pwllfanogl was the terminus of a Menai Strait ferry crossing. The harbour remained in use for goods well into the 20th century.
In the 18th century Pwllfanogl had a boat-building yard. From 1876 the Britannia Slate Works at Pwllfanogl received slate by boat from quarries on the mainland opposite. It produced writing slates for schools across the world.
West of the river mouth stands a whitewashed cottage called Min-y-Môr, formerly the Boat Inn. This was the last home of Sir Kyffin Williams. He was born in Llangefni and studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. He retired to Pwllfanogl in 1974, the year he was elected to the Royal Academy. He is best known for his evocative paintings of Welsh landscapes.
