A collection of 14 graded circular walks in Gower, with clear directions and maps, together with references to local characteristics, points of interest and folk lore on each route. A new edition of a volume first published in 1998 (9780863814778 / 0863814778).
All part of the Gower peninsula are covered in 14 varied and circular walks in this book. Not only is Gower's dramatic cliff and coastal scenery explored, but also the guieter and equally attractive stretches of the less well-known northern coast. Add to this the quaint, rural charm of the inland farms and meadowlands and you have a guide that truly opens up one of Wales' most beautiful Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Each walk gives clear and concise directions, checked for accuracy by fellow walkers, and is accompanied by a sketch map. In addition, points of interest along the way are both highlighted on the maps and presented in the text.
Attractions in Gower include ancient tombs, medieval castles, nature reserves and some of the best coastal scenery to be found anywhere. Also included are some of the local lores and tales that add that magical ingredient that will really make you want to go out and discover the place for yourself.
