Gower Society Design Awards

Since 2003 our Planning Committee has made awards for projects that are judged to be worthy of recognition and are in our judges’ opinion well above the average.

Two awards have been made  to individuals who have shown particular skills in traditional construction methods. We strive to locate projects within the whole area of The Lordship of Gower and have concentrated on traditional buildings and restoration with a few modern designs included.

We welcome suggestions for awards, send to gowsocsecratary@gmail.com by no later than December. Judging takes place in the early part of the year (usually January). We present our awards at our AGM.
