One Name Study of Gronow / Gronnow / Goronwy

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

For over 70 years a lifeboat has covered the Horton and Port Eynon area of the south Gower coast, Glamorganshire. As part of her crew father and daughter Stuart Gronow (deputy launching authority) & Mari Gronow (crew member) cast a watchful eye across the waters of the Gower Peninsula.

Stuart & Mari's family have lived and farmed in the Gower Peninsula for over 275 years . The Peninsula's richly varied natural environment is renowned for its heathland, limestone grassland, fresh- and salt-water marshes, dunes and oak woodlands. Its mixed geology has given rise to a wide variety of scenery in a relatively small landscape area. Dramatic limestone cliffs, interspersed with sandy beaches and rocky shores, dominate its southern coast. In the north, the coast is low-lying with extensive salt marshes and dune systems.
