Gower was the first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the UK and is rightly famous for its beaches, its surfing and its history. Here are the cliffs, bays and beaches of the south coast, including the iconic Worm’s Head and Rhossili, with their castles, disappearing industrial remains and literary links. And here too are the rugged moorlands stretching north to Castell Pennlle’r on Mynydd y Gwair, start of the Gower Way, with their farms, quiet ruins and slopes to the Loughor Estuary.
Nigel Jenkins, Gower born and raised, and always a near neighbour in Mumbles, brings a rich mix of history, personal memory and intimate insights as he walks the territory and writes about the place he loved best, in what was to be his last book before his untimely death in 2014.
Real Gower will appeal to locals, visitors and enthusiasts for Gower anxious to get beyond the tourist brochures and find out more about the area from a first hand source.
