We hope you are keeping safe and well during these difficult times.  We are all looking forward to resuming our normal activities as soon as we are able to do so.

At The Gower Society, we are using the disruption caused by Covid-19 to rationalise our annual programme.  Our AGM will be held in May and our programmes will run from May to October and November to April (instead of April-September and October-March).  

Our walks programme has now resumed and can be found in the Members section. (September 2021)

Welcome to The Gower Society and to Gower. The Gower Society was set up in 1947 to study the history and natural history of the lordship of Gower and to protect its special characteristics. Gower has a rich history, going back 40,000 years and a diverse and beautiful landscape, from the majestic uplands in the north to the superb Gower peninsula, much of which was designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1956.

We want you to enjoy this special place, to learn about it and to appreciate it. And we know that you will come to love it too.

Together we can safeguard everything that is special about it.
