Whiteford Point to Gowerton
The northern coast of Gower consists of extensive salt-marsh, a place used to graze sheep, once famed for its
cockle-picking. The marsh is interrupted by rivers known as pills and is a dangerous place to venture out onto due
to the fast rising tides. At the highest tides the roads on the edges of the marsh flood too. The character of
Gower is quite different here, far more peaceful and attractive to wildlife. This is not an area for tourists.
