Old Gower Farmhouses and their families

This book was first published in 1998 to mark the Golden Jubilee of The Gower Society. It has been out of print for a number of years, but demand has continued so the Society decided to publish a new paper-back version.

The author, a former Chartered surveyor and Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London, had a life-long interest in Gower’s landscape history. For more than forty years he recorded old Gower houses and this book contains his scale drawings, photographs and detailed descriptions of thirty selected farmhouses and cottages in the peninsula, some going back to the sixteenth century or even earlier.

The author also used a variety of documentary evidence to trace the families who owned these houses and the people who lived in them.

The book can be purchased here..
