Rhossili, which lies at
the western end of the Gower Peninsula and
overlooks dramatic Worms Head, boasts a flat
sandy beach, dramatic views and the sort of
conditions that surfers, paragliders and
others love to experience.
There are numerous burial chambers on the downs nearby, including the reputed grave of Sweyne Forkbeard, the Danish king who gave his name to Swansea. Remains of a Stone Age human were found in a local cave.
Offshore lies the wreck of the Helvetia that ran aground in Rhossili Bay in 1887.
|Rhossili’s church has a memorial to Petty Officer Edgar Evans, a local man who was one of Scott’s companions on his ill-judged Terra Nova expedition to the South Pole in 1911.|
