As always with a Taste of Gower walk we ended our outing at Port Eynon with a visit to a local cafe or pub – in this instance it was The Ship Inn. I don’t know where the anchor came from but I wouldn’t be surprised if it were attributed to one of the smugglers’ ships that apparently used to frequent Port Eynon! That may be unlikely but if anyone does know where the anchor came from, please let me know 😉
Having returned from the Horton and Port Eynon RNLI station, we set off again in the opposite direction for this Taste of Gower walk and visited The Old Salt House which stands on the rocks at the southern end of the beach. Originally used, as the name suggests, to harvest sea salt, the building is now in ruins but has an interesting history which can be read at the link above.
StillWalks will be joining this sixth Taste of Gower walk for 2016 at Port Eynon on South Gower. I will be photographing the walk and carrying out some field recording. These will be displayed on the StillWalks blog a couple of weeks after the walk and before the next taste of Gower walk.
Meet in the Ship Inn for a walk that will include the RNLI station, the Salt House, Culver Hole and land management. There will also be a newly qualified leaders talk by Lowri Grove and Claire Cannington from the National Trust.
There will be both a short walk of 2 miles and a longer one of 3.5 miles.
