Summary: The Gower Way came about as a Millennium project. The Gower Society created the route between Penlle'r Castell in the north-east of the Gower Peninsula and Rhossili on the south-west coast. It revealed unknown Gower using existing paths, dismantled railways, permissive rights of way and roadway to form a continuous walk between the upland areas and the coast. The Gower Way was inaugurated by the Prince of Wales in July 1998. To walk the Gower Way is to walk through 5,000 years of history, from Bronze Age to the Industrial Revolution and through South wales Mining legacy to the present day. From beginning to end the route visits Upper and Lower Lliw Reservoirs, Felindre, Pontlliw, Gorseinon, Gowerton, Three Crosses, Welsh Moor, Park Woods, Cefn Bryn, Holy Well, Reynoldston, Knelston, Llanddewi, Talgarth's Well, Rhossili and Worms Head.
