It is part of the Swansea Bay region and the historic county of Glamorgan, as well as the ancient Welsh commote of Gyr, and is located along Swansea Bay in southwest Wales, with the main area spanning the Gower Peninsula.

Tabernacle Chapel

Swansea’s John Humphreys built Morriston’s Tabernacle Chapel in 1872. The use of semi-circular arches is a distinguishing feature. The edifice is known as the “Nonconformist Cathedral of Wales,” and it is considered Grade I listed because it is “the most ambitious splendid church in Wales, its interior and furnishings remaining practically untouched.”
