Gower Heritage Centre re-opening update
Huge thanks for everyone’s support during the last few months.
As we emerge from lockdown we are getting a few things underway at the Centre.
During the last few months we have kept the Water Mill working making flour and this has been available for direct delivery and from Shepherds shop in Parkmill who we have to thank for remaining open for the local community.
We have also been able to continue with our Cider making and home deliveries are available from ShedHead Cider.
Our resident Bakers – Little Valley Bakery- have also been producing throughout the last few months and are now open again to the public on Wednesday to Sunday 10am to 4pm but still best to call them to pre-order if you need anything or visit thier website Little Valley Bakery.
Our Tearooms have been operating a home delivery service and one of the most popular orders has been a cream tea package.
Thanks to Heritage Lottery funding some work has been able to continue with the Iron Age roundhouse in the front fields.
We are able to open up the car park, along with the front tea garden and some outside activities in the Iron Age Roundhouse. Unfortunately due to Welsh Government Regulations we cannot yet re-open any of our indoor facilities including play areas, animal park, the Mill Building and Museum Displays.
As a family or “bubble” group you can book to do an activity with our resident craft workers, Kevin, Roberta, Katie, Chendore and Helen at the Roundhouse – see links in the menu for details on how to do this. For children’s parties please enquire with each resident craft or activity provider.
These activities are subject to you being compliant with current pandemic regulations.
A Tea Garden will be operated from the Front shop at the Mill. For opening times please telephone 07897-201230. Please ensure you are compliant with Track & Trace guidelines.
Mill made products such as Flour and Cider will be available for sale by pre-order and can be collected from the front shop. We will also be stocking some locally made crafts including all of the Pineneedles range of name plates.
We are fully committed to the policy of staying safe during the pandemic and for that reason we will be restricting the numbers of Visitors to the Centre at any one time. We will not fully re-open until the pandemic is over and it safe to do so.
Please pre-book your visit through the links on the website.
Season ticket holders can use their membership pass for parking and use of the outside areas. Season Tickets will be automatically extended for the periods we have been closed and whilst we can only offer restricted access.
For car park use only such as for the beach or hiking etc you can pay on arrival, however with large numbers of visitors expected we advise you to pre-book your parking space here.
Please note that our toilets are open for limited hours from Friday to Monday 11am to 5pm
