Rather interesting Swansea facts
Did you know that the Gower Peninsula near Swansea was Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? It was designated such in 1956, the outrider for now more than 40 such places (five within Wales). With a big city nearby and facing growing tourism the beautiful Gower was an obvious choice for such protection. It boasts a dozen orchid species, varied birdlife, and rare invertebrates such as the Dotted Bee Fly and The Bloody Nosed Beetle.
