Pa-pa Jewellery Gallery Opens

I am opening a new gallery in Parkmill, at the old barn in grounds of the Heritage Centre. Admission is free with ample parking. You welcome to visit . The gallery is open every day through the summer holidays from 10am till 5pm.

The Pa-pa gallery has a unique Collection of designs in silver and gold that I hope will inspire you. Many of the designs from the website will be on display and for sale. I will have the facility to take all major credit and debit cards at the gallery.

The Pa-pa gallery is situated in the centre of Parkmill at Gower Heritage Centre on the main South Road that takes you along the South Coast of the Peninsula. The centre is a wonderful place to visit with the whole family, offering an insight into Gower’s agricultural and historical past. It also offers a fun play area for younger children undercover, alongside a cafe with traditional welsh hot and cold food.

Look out for activity days at the centre for a fun packed day for all throughout the year.

Visit the Pa-pa Gallery and then enjoy a nice coffee or Cream Tea at the Centre!

Combine a visit to the Gallery with a day exploring Gower.

Parkmill also hosts the gateway to one of the best beaches in the world according to the lonely planet guide for 2011. Three cliffs bay and its stunning scenery begins here at the stream adjacent to the heritage centre where the cool waters from the Gower hills floods down to the sea at Three Cliffs. A stroll from Parkmill through a wooded valley is rewarded at the end by stepping foot on the golden sands at one of Gower’s most beautiful and treasured beaches – Three Cliffs Bay.

Parkmill is also on the doorstep to Green Cwm. A valley full of history. Here lies the graves of a number of Neolithic men and women buried deep in limestone tombs. More recently and of huge importance was the possible discovery of one of Europe’s oldest cave paintings dating back thousands of years BC. The valley hosts three deep Cavernous caves a thrilling place for any nature lover. Birds of prey circle the tree tops every morning their cries can be heard echoing through the Cwm, on a recent walk we found badger sets deep in the woods and the hot summer afternoon air was buzzing with dragonflies. A truly majical place and well worth a walk.
