An afternoon walkabout along the sea front from Mumbles Head.
For over 200 years the Mumbles Lighthouse has guided vessels along the coast and into Swansea Bay. The fort or battery which surrounds the southern side of the lighthouse was built in 1860 by the War Department.
Mumbles pier and lifeboat station.
The church of All Saints. We had hoped to find the gravestone of a distant relative but they had sadly all been taken away and laid out in paths etc.
A different angle on the lighthouse.
The lifeboat station.
From here you may think you could walk to the lighthouse but it is only accessible on foot at very low tides.
The Mumbles head car park with the coastguard station on the headland.
