About Llanrhidian

I know a place where the wild thyme grows, and every step that you take crushes a fresh smell of the herb out of the springy limestone grassland. The place is Llanrhidian on the North Gower coast. This small sleepy village, with a fine view of the Burry Estuary, was, until the start of the 20th century the centre of a large weaving industry. Nether Mill still survives with its own millpond and broken mill wheel. Now it is famous for little else other than peace and quiet, birdwatching, and it is a paradise for lovers of wild flowers. Llanrhidian is one of the few places in Britain where one is likely to catch a glimpse of the rare Marble White butterfly.

Views take in the salt marsh with flocks of sheep and small black ponies. Out on the estuary cocklers used to collect their shellfish and load them onto panniers strapped on to donkeys. The donkey have gone but there are still cockle beds. I'm told that lamb which has grazed on the salt marsh has a distinctively good taste.

The lost village of Llanelon is now overgrown by woods. Stranded sailors looking for help sadly carried the plague to the village and all the residents were wiped out.

There are two standing stones on the village green. One is clearly the remains of a Celtic cross the other was, according to Parish records, raised in 1884 and was probably used as a pillory. In the porch of the village church is a stone carved with human and animal figures which dates back to the 9th century. While you are near the church don't miss the unusual epitaph on the southern wall on the grave of Robert Hary who died in 1646.
