The village of Reynoldston

Arthur's Stone on Cefn Bryn, with views over the Loughor Estuary.

Reynoldston is situated on the Western slopes of Cefn Bryn, in the heart of Gower. It is thought to have derived its name from one of the early Lords of Gower, Reginald de Breos.

Reynoldston is the intersection of North and South Gower and has the advantage of sharing the views of both landscapes. From the top of Cefn Bryn, the second highest point on Gower and whose prominent skyline dominates most of the views, you can wonder at the breathtaking scenery.

On a clear day, you can not only see the coastline of the peninsula, but over the Bristol Channel to Lundy Island, Devon and Exmoor, North towards the Brecon Beacons and West to Carmarthenshire.

Arthur's Stone pictured above is a Neolithic tomb. There are many legends and tales associated with it. One in particular speaks of a local miller, who cut a piece off the stone to use as a millstone, but once it was apart, was too heavy to move. The separated piece has laid in its fallen state since.
Another legend mentions that the stone was a pebble in King Arthur's boot. once he had removed it from his boot, he threw it across the water and it came to land on Cefn Bryn. Watch out if you are around on Old Year's Night (New Year's Eve). The stone is supposed to get up and go down to the sea for a drink!

The village also has a strong connection with the Lucas family who have been part of Gower for 500 years. They built Stouthall and had strong connections with the Salt House at Port Eynon and the Old Rectory in Rhossili. Stouthall can be seen as the grand country house at the Southern end of Reynoldston towards Knelston.
(A good book to read is A Gower Family by Robert Lucas, ISBN 0 86332 126 7)

 

Landscape
 
Cefn Bryn is a common. which means that any farmers that have Commoner's Rights on the Bryn can graze their animals there. Horses, cows and sheep wander freely over the common ... and the road. Please take care when driving, too many four-legged lives are lost each year and it is not always through the driver's negligence. A dark animal, stepping out suddenly in front of a car on a dark night, just simply cannot be seen, so please, SLOW DOWN.
