Availability: Out of stock

Author: Brian E. Davies

Mumbles and the Gower occupy a special place in the history of Wales. The Gower peninsula was the first place in Britain to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Mumbles village, on a headland, has long been well known for its oyster fishing and promenade along the ‘Mumbles Mile’, which attracted many visitors on the Mumbles Train, the world’s first passenger service. The line has since closed, but many still come to this delightful village and to explore the stunning landscape of the Gower peninsula, with its wide beaches and dramatic cliffs.

In A-Z of Mumbles and Gower author Brian E. Davies delves into the history of the area, highlighting well-known landmarks, including Mumbles pier and lifeboat station, the lighthouse perched on a rocky island by Mumbles Head and Oystermouth Castle, as well as digging beneath the surface to uncover some of the lesser known facts about the Gower peninsula and its hidden places of interest. This fascinating A-Z tour of Mumbles’ and the Gower’s history is fully illustrated with photography and will appeal to all those with an interest in this corner of Wales.
