You may have suffered whiplash injury in Llanfairpwllgwyngyll if, for example you jolted your head violently while trying to read the sign at the station at Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, which is the longest one, if not in the world, then certainly in the UK. The full name of this village on the Isle of Anglesey is Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, which is something of a mouthful.
The long name means: – Saint Mary’s church in the hollow of the white hazel near the rapid whirlpool and the church of Saint Tysilio with a red cave. This long name, however, was a publicity stunt when the railway was opened, and it was an attempt to attract tourists to the village.
There has been human habitation on the site for around 6,000 years, and it has a more or less continuous history of farming since those early times. In 1563 it is recorded that the population only numbered 80. It might be small, but in April 2014 it became the first place in the UK to ban smoking in public places, even outside shops and so on.
