Mumbles and Gower Pubs

This fascinating new book about its inns and taverns encapsulates much of the area’s history and character. Mumbles is a village by the sea once well known for oyster fishing, limestone quarrying and the Mumbles Train.

The ‘Mumbles Mile’ became famous as a pub crawl in the 1970s but it was in business a very long time before that. The Welsh Sunday Closing Act of 1881 resulted in so-called ‘travellers’ taking advantage of a loophole and flocking to Mumbles in their thousands on Sundays and doing their best to drink the pubs dry.

This and many other stories are related here, including those times when Dylan Thomas ‘communed with those two legendary creatures, the Antelope and the Mermaid’.

Gower’s past includes many stories of shipwrecks and smuggling and its pubs played their part in this as well. The characters featured include Petty Officer Edgar Evans, who accompanied Captain Scott on his ill-fated journey to the South Pole. It also features the folk singer Phil Tanner, known as the Gower Nightingale, who married the landlady of the Welcome to Town in Llangennith over a century ago.

This well-researched book relates the history of the area’s pubs from backstreet locals to smart hotels and will delight all lovers of ale and anecdote.
