burryholmes_clip_image001Cut off from the mainland for 5 hours at high tide, the small islet marking the northern end of Rhossili Bay (Llangennith) has a rich and varied history.

Mesolithic flints have been found here as well as a pin dating as far back as the Bronze Age.

At the western end of the islet once stood a 5 acre fort and this site is still separated from the other 10.25 acres of land by a double rampart and wide ditch.

Later, during the Middle Ages, a monastery was constructed on the landward end of the island and remains of this building can still be seen today.
