Did you know that Holyhead County School was Britain’s first comprehensive school when it amalgamated Holyhead Grammar and St Cybi Central School in 1949?

Did you know the A5114 running just 2 miles from Llangefni to the A5 and junction 6 of the A55 is the shortest plain A-Road in Britain?

And plenty bigger still than the shortest motorway – the A635(M) in Manchester which is less than 1000 feet.
