ABC Wednesday - G

This week it's G for Gower or Gwyr. The Gower peninsula is in the south of Wales - and I live at the very edge of it. It's about 70 sq miles in area and was the first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to be designated in the UK in 1956.

First the mudflats of the north Gower shore and estuary.

Then the cliffs of the south Gower coastline.

Only last month an archaeologist in a Gower cave came across a scratched painting, which is believed could be the oldest example of rock art - more than 14,000 years old - in Britain. Another reason to come and visit our beautiful Gower!

To see other entries and take part ABC Wednesday go here.

I love the Gower peninsula. We used to go there when our youngest daughter was at university in Swansea.
