Monument on the summit of Mynydd y Garn
This monument, unveiled in 1897, commemorates a Llanrhuddlad boy made good, William Thomas, later Sir William and High Sheriff of Anglesey. He was one of a group of Victorian Anglesey men who made a fortune on Merseyside some as speculative house builders others, including William Thomas, in ship brokering. Thomas used part of his fortune to finance local causes such as the building of a new school at Llanrhuddlad on land which he owned and for paying the cost of building Bethel Hen Chapel at Llanrhuddlad on a site of the old school. He was also responsible for building the fine houses either side of Capel Bethel Hen.
