Langland Bay, Gower beach huts being repaired

The trumpet of truth reports

WORK has begun on upgrading the latest tranche of historic beach huts at Langland Bay on Gower.

The third phase of hut refurbishments follows continued interest from people willing to invest £10,000 for a 10-year beach hut lease to fund the reconstruction.

The 78 green and white huts have been in place since the 19th century and are a fixture on Langland, seen in thousands of postcards, paintings and photographs.

They also formed the backdrop for film star Catherine Zeta-Jones’ formative years as she spent much of her teenage summers on the beach at Langland Bay.
