Gower was the first area of the United Kingdom to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the peninsula is a wonderful place for walking. This Summer will see the official opening of the 50-mile long Gower Pilgrimage Way, linking all 17 historic churches in Gower, and including several chapels and other Christian sacred sites along the way. It will run from Penclawdd in the north-east, around the peninsula, finishing at St Teilo’s in Bishopston in the south-east. Prior to the opening, the pilgrimage route is being made available via this website. Please note that until the official opening, there are no arrangements for churches to be open.
Television and radio presenter Adrian Chiles has kindly agreed to act as Patron for the Pilgrimage Way.
