The tiny 'Cathedral of Gower' was probably built in the early 14th
century to replace the one at Landimore, abandoned due to the
encroachment of the sea. The tower, without transepts, is between
the nave and chancel, an uncommon design in South Wales.
The doorway is a fine example from the Decorated period. The
Norman font is said to have come from the old church. The old rood
loft entrance can be seen above the pulpit. The church was
restored in 1874 by the famous Gower historian, Rev J D Davies,
who personally carved the choir stalls, altar rails, altar and the
embossed wooden ceiling. He is buried close to the south wall in
the churchyard, near Ernest Jones, the disciple and biographer of
Open daily throughout the year.
