The village of Horton

Horton
Horton is a very pretty little village in South Gower, set on a steep hill that stretches down to the beautiful beach. It shares the bay with Port Eynon which is located at the Western end.
Like many Gower villages its roots are mainly agricultural, but Horton also has a long connection with the lifeboat and Methodism.
Horton from the beach.  The lifeboat station is on the front right.
In the centre of the bay are two orange buoys that mark the remains of the Prince Ivanhoe. The Prince Ivanhoe was was used a pleasure craft, but on the 3rd August 1981 it hit something just off the edge of Port Eynon Point. The skipper assessed the sitauation and as they were quickly taking on water, "... the vessel was turned quickly around and came right up onto the beach!", according to one onlooker.
