Sunshine was replaced by gale force winds and sleet but this didn’t stop an amazing visit to Rhossili today. A group from Communities First in Morriston were the ninth group to take part in my Bringing Gower Home project. Here we encouraged participants who have little knowledge or experience of the Gower to engage with the history, people, landscape, and coastline through a series of photography tasks.
Rhossili Bay has just been voted the most beautiful in Wales in a recent survey so it was a real pleasure to be out there today despite the inclement weather. But the landscape, although part of the experience, was not what today was all about. Today was a voyage of discovery to help each other find out more. We found farmyards, churches, beaches, and wildlife in a quest to see the alternative side of this picturesque location.
One participant summed up the experience far better than I could with this comment:
” You see so many images of Rhossili that you feel you know it well. This course helped me to look from new perspectives and rediscover this beautiful location. Can’t wait to discover more.” – Alison
I am organising, delivering, and supporting this project in collaboration with Gower Landscape Partnership (GLP) which is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Natural Resources Wales, City and County of Swansea, and National Trust.
