Call to move historic Llangollen monument sparks opposition

A controversial call has been made to relocate the Eliseg Pillar - ranked as one of the most important monuments in North Wales - according to a story on North Wales Live. 

A Senedd petition has demanded the pillar, sited close to Llangollen, be housed in a museum so it can be saved from further decay out in the open.

People in the area have angrily dismissed what many see as a culture grab by South Wales. The idea has been labelled “ridiculous” and likened to “moving Hadrian's Wall to the British Museum”.
