Llangennith, City of Swansea
Llangennith sits on the far west of the the Gower Peninsula in South West Wales. One of Wales' finest beaches, the wide sandy beach of Rhossili Bay, lies 1 mile west of Llangennith. There are superb walks from Llangennith with fine views of Worm's Head and the Gower coastline. It is a perfect spot for rock pooling, fishing, surfing, bodyboarding and swimming.
The village has a scattering of houses, a surfing shop, and one pub - the Kings Head. The parish church, dedicated to St Cenydd, was founded as a monastery, and later became a priory. Legend has it that, as a crippled baby, St Cenydd was put into a river in a willow cradle but was washed ashore. Two sea-birds cared for him by plucking themselves in order to make a nest for the baby. He was fed by a deer who came to him every day and squirted milk into a bell which had been delivered by an angel. At one time, the Swansea Church contained a stained-glass window depicting St Cenydd as a one-legged man with a deer and a seagull for company.
Rhossili and Port Eynon lie to the south, and the villages of Cheriton and LLanmadoc to the north east.
