Overview

'There are a total of 24 individual commons on Gower covering over 70 square kilometres and constituting 50% of the total land area of the Gower Peninsula ... Historically, most areas of common land in Wales have been open for public access with the consent of the landowner. In May 2005 the Countryside Rights of Way Act (CRoW) established common land, mountain, moor, heath and down as open access land where people can walk in some of the most spectacular landscapes in Wales. These areas are clearly marked on Ordnance Survey Explorer Maps.'

Overview

'It is with much regret that the Gower Walking Festival Association's (GWFA) committee has to announce that this year's festival will not go ahead [2015]. The loss of key members of the organising committee due to illness and changes in personal circumstances has meant that insufficient volunteers remain to guarantee the delivery of a safe festival. Nobody can feel more sorry about this than the GWFA committee members ... We have every reason to hope that the festival will return in 2016, stronger and more varied than ever ...'

Starting fromCommunity of Mawr
Overview

'Formed in March 2005 by the Mawr Development Trust when trust member, Terry Davies, was handed the task of encouraging local communities to take part in planned walks throughout south and west Wales. The club now has more than 250 members and some 40 members regularly turn up to each walk ... The Lliw Walking Club was formed in June 2016. It has replaced the Mawr Walking Club which was formed in 2005. The renaming was necessary due to unforseen circumstances. It is just the name that has changed.'

'The "lovely, ugly town "of Swansea is the birthplace of Dylan Marlais Thomas, one of the most famous poets writing in the English language in the Western World during the twentieth century ... Because of its industrial importance, the city was heavily bombed during the Second World War and Dylan wrote a short story "Return Journey" in which he bemoans the loss of the town that he turned his back on in his youth ...

'Constructed 1794-1798 by the Swansea Canal Navigation Company, the canal rose 375 feet through 36 locks from sea level at Swansea up the valley to Abercraf. Built to carry coal down to industries in the Lower Swansea Valley and for export, this new link to the sea enabled development all along the valley of industries and the towns we know today.'
