Gower Walking Festival

Annual Celebration of Gower

Ups and Downs in the heart of Gower

Rhossili Downs

The highlight of this walk will be visiting the highest point on the Gower Peninsula at Rhossili Down. The steady climb to the trig point will reward us with (weather permitting) 360 degree views of the peninsula, Worms Head, the Bristol Channel, West Wales and the Bannau Brycheiniog.

We will start at  the still active 800 year old St David’s Church, Llandewi located in a rustic farmyard. Whilst we will follow short stretches of the Gower Way and the Gower Pilgrimage Way, much of our ten-mile route will be on lesser known paths and pass a number of isolated abandoned homesteads close to Hardingsdown, the remains of a WWII radar station and the site of an old woollen mill, now a private house.
