Gower Heritage Centre
A demonstration of renewable energy use past and present.
Gower Heritage Centre is a countryside crafts centre and museum of rural life with a fully operational 12th century water powered corn and saw mill, a collection of antique farming and cultivation equipment, and a working woollen mill.
There is a small apple orchard and the Centre holds an annual apple and cider weekend when a 150 year old mobile cider press is put to use. The site also includes indoor teaching areas, toilets, outdoor and indoor displays, a shop and tearooms, picnic areas, a play area and a small farm animal and pet area.
The Centre is open 10am–5pm everyday and offers a programme of public events and a range of educational workshops and activities. There is a general entrance fee to the Centre and additional charges are applied for certain activities and workshops. The Centre has its own car park with bus parking, and a toilet block with an array of solar panels on the roof. Most of the site is wheelchair accessible.
There are volunteer opportunities with this Trail project.
