Exploring the Vile

A family walking at Rhossili, Gower

At Rhossili, we have fantastic footpaths that allow you to take in the stunning views over Rhossili Bay, over the headland and out to the Worm. What’s missing at the moment is the opportunity to follow circular routes around the area, especially on the Vile.

We are developing a network of circular walking routes through the Vile as part of our restoration project. These new paths will take you through the flower rich meadows and past colourful crops. 

These routes will vary in length from half an hour stroll to a pleasant tour around the headland, all within a short distance from the newly refurbished car park at Rhossili. 

We’ll be working on installing the infrastructure to open up these new paths during the Autumn of 2017, with a view to have the first stage of paths open in Spring 2018.
