The village of Llangennith or "Llangenydd" (meaning Church of St Cenydd) nestles between the slopes of three hills; Llanmadoc Hill, Rhossili Down and Hardingsdown. The latter is the smallest of the red sandstone hills and has a number of iron age earthworks on its slopes. Llangennith is a popular destination with families and surfers (it even has its own surf shop). Even before surfing became popular, the sea was the focal point of the village, given its setting at the foot of the hills. There must be as many tales involving shipwrecks and smuggling in Llangennith, as exists for their neighbours in Horton and Port Eynon or Brandy Cove, Bishopston. The church in Llangennith is the largest in Gower and is believed to have evolved from St Cenydd's Priory, founded in the 6th century and hence giving its name to the village.
