Rhossili Cliffs and Worm's Head, Gower. The Gower Peninsular was the first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the UK and covers 188 km². The small island Worm's Head may be access by a causeway some 2.5 hours each side of low water. On Worm's Head are the remains of a promontory fort, a prehistoric or early historic enclosure the date of which is uncertain. On the north edge of the causeway near the mainland is an anchor from The Samuel, carrying 500 tons of coal from Swansea, it went ashore on rocks in November 1884. The Rhossili LSA rescued the ship’s crew. Grey seals may often be seen swimming around Worm's Head. Worm's Head takes its name from the old English 'wurm or wyrm' meaning dragon - so dragons head. The cliffs tower 50 to 60m above the golden sands of Rhossili Bay and are home to thousands of nesting seabirds. The lower reaches of the cliffs are used by local fishermen where sea bass can often be caught. A fisherman from a previous visit has left a message in small stones for the next visitor. Worm's Head, the cliffs and large areas of the Gower coast are owned by the National Trust. Near the base of the cliffs is the small wooden boathouse at Kitchen Corner.
