Penclawdd

An ever-sprawling village clinging to the northern fringe of the Loughor Estuary, Penclawdd has a history perhaps richer than any other on the Gower Peninsula. Famous for its association with cockling, an industry which predominates today in the more westward village of Llanmorlais, the village was once a port of some importance and its rather scarred looking landscape has endured the ecological ravages of the coal mining and copper-smelting industries.

The village today, however, is a much quieter place and affords the visitor with fine views over the windswept northern coast of Gower and over the estuary towards Llanelli and the county of Dyfed.
