The church was built by Anglo-Norman settlers around the year
1200, and has a saddleback tower. The doorway surround is a fine
example of late Norman work, rare in Wales and unique in Gower.
Being obviously altered at the apex, it is thought to have come from
the original church in the sand dunes below the village, excavated
in 1980 and covered over again. A scratch dial sundial can be seen
on the left side of the arch.
The nave contains several stained glass windows and memorials,
including one to Petty Officer Edgar Evans, a Rhossili man who died
with Captain Scott in the Antarctic in 1912. The chancel has a low
side or lepers’ window, and the churchyard has graves with
inscriptions going back to 1784.
Open throughout the year.
