Nicholaston, City of Swansea
Nicholaston is situated on the south coast of the Gower Peninsula in South Wales. The village lies within a stones throw of Oxwich Bay and the fabulous beaches of Oxwich beach and Three Cliffs Bay beach.
Three Cliffs Bay consists of golden sands and limestone cliffs, making it popular with both families and the rock climbing fraternity. Sea canoeing, surfing and swimming can all be taken up here, although due to the strong tides it is probably better to paddle than to swim!
Gower Peninsula Beaches
Oxwich Bay is a beautiful long sandy beach with a slipway for easy access. It attracts many visitors each year for its canoeing, boating, sailing, swimming, windsurfing and even scuba diving opportunities. A water taxi also operates from the bay, taking tourists to Pwll Du and Pobbles. Walkers will appreciate the miles of sand dunes at the Burrows and beachcombers the wide variety of shells washed ashore after each new tide. The vibrant city of Swansea lies only 10 miles to the north east, whilst the Brecon Beacons National Park is just over an hour to the north.
The village church, dedicated to St Nicholas, dates back to the 14th century. However, it was heavily restored in 1894 and little survives of the former church. The building has many interesting features such as the Victorian Gothic windows and a single bell dating back to 1518. There is also a font which has been carved from a single slab of stalagmite and a 14th century sepulchral slab.
