Overview

Llanrhidian Marsh is owned by the National Trust, and is part of the Gower Commons Initiative. The area adjoins the Loughor Estuary, and is an extensive area of grazed salt-marsh. Llanrhidian Marsh is a very important habitat and is a RAMSAR site (protected wetland), a National Nature Reserve (NNR), a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), a special protection area (SPA) and a special area of conservation (SAC). It is an important feeding ground for wading birds including oystercactcher, turnstone and redshank.
Llanrhidian Marsh is covered by the sea at high tide. At low tide this boggy area is criss-crossed by a maze of gullies and streams. The rapid incoming tides and boggy nature of this land make this area unsuitable for walking.
