The lordship of Gower has existed for a thousand years; and for centuries before that it was the Welsh district of Gŵyr. It includes majestic uplands to the north, Wales’ second city at its centre and – to the west – the superb Gower peninsula which encompasses the UK’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1956.
