Llanddeusant is claimed to be the burial place of Branwen. It has Anglesey's only working windmill, Llynnon Mill, opened in 1775 at a cost of £550 and renovated by the local council in 1986 and opened to the public. The mill was originally located there as it lies just to the north of the Afon Alaw, and a little west of Llyn Alaw.

The co-educational village primary school, Ysgol Gynradd Llanddeusant closed in July 2011 after serving the village for 160 years. On October 2, 2013, the Isle of Anglesey Council Planning Committee granted permission for the council to demolish the school and build 8 houses.[1][2][3]
