The Local Area
The Gower penisular is Britain's first offical Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty - it's a stunning area, with walking, surfing, climbing, moors and castles and ancient archaeological remains. There are plenty of Bronze Age stone monuments still standing, dating from about 7,000BC, and even an axehead proving human settlement 125,000 years ago.
