During the wedding of Katy and Lewys on the 28th March 2014 I noticed Bart Simpson peeping out at me from inside Llanrhidian church. Lisa and Maggie are also hiding in the image. They must have been on holiday in Gower but unfortunately they were not staying at Hill House – Gower self catering holiday cottage.
Llanrhidian is a village located in the Gower peninsula about 10 miles from Swansea. Swansea is a city in Wales and the Gower peninsula is a prominent feature of Wales’s southern coastline. The Gower peninsula was designated as the UK’s first area of outstanding natural beauty (ANOB) in 1956 and this has prevented the area from being overdeveloped and over commercialized. It has a beautiful and unspoiled coastline with numerous beaches and bays. Many of the more popular bays have seaside awards and one or two have been voted as Britain’s best beach. These include Caswell, Port Eynon and Three Cliffs. Rhossili Bay is frequently awarded Britain’s best beach award, it regularly appears in the top 3 beaches in Europe and in the top 10 beaches in the World.
The church in Llanrhidian is dedicated to St Rhydian and St Illtyd and the building is of Norman origin. You can read more about the church on our Llanrhidian page.
