You can still enjoy a walk in these difficult times - walking is great for your physical and mental health.

You are entitled to exercise once daily, but this should be from your home address. You should not drive to a location away from your home address to exercise, walk your dogs, etc. This is unnecessary travel and not permitted under current travel restrictions.

All destination car parks around Gower coastline are now closed in support of these travel restrictions. You may still use a beach or rural footpath to exercise if you live within walking distance and remember the instructions about social distancing.

Do not meet or walk together in groups unless you live with those people. Keep a safe distance from other people - at least two metres away. If the beach or footpath is so busy that you're unable to maintain that distance, then leave and go home.

Your cooperation and understanding at this time is appreciated.

Gower AONB

Gower Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Gower - a land apart...

Gower AONB 1956 - 2016... a precious landscape whose distinctive character and natural beauty is so outstanding that it is protected for future generations...

Designated in 1956 for its classic limestone coast and the variety of its natural habitats, it was the first AONB designated in the UK. Now we are part of a family of 46 AONBs and 13 National Parks in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Planning legislation gives Gower the same protection as a National Park.

Rich and diverse, Gower's scenery ranges from fragile dune and salt marsh in the north to the dramatic limestone cliffs along the south coast, intercut by sand beaches. Inland, the hills of Cefn Bryn and Rhossili Down dominate the landscape of traditional small fields, wooded valleys and open commons.

Award-winning beaches, dramatic coast, rolling downs, and traditional villages linked by small lanes make Gower a place to unwind and recharge your batteries.
