A PHOTO A DAY HELPS …… Day 94

Continuing the theme of ruins, today’s selection are from the Gower Peninsula in Wales.

These ruins at Port Eynon were originally built in the 16th Century as a saltwork (extracting salt from the sea) but from the 17th C, they were used as houses for oyster fishermen and quarrymen until they were abandoned in about 1900.

 

Above Three Cliffs Bay are the ruins of Pennard Castle which was built from the late 12th C.
