History

The Benefice of Three Cliffs was created from the older parishes of Ilston with Pennard and Nicholaston with Penmaen.
The latter two churches have at various times belonged to Oxwich and Bishopston but in August 2011 were brought togther to form a single Pastoral unit to serve the communties gathered around Three Cliffs Bay.
Each church is steeped in history and further information can be obtained.
There is a guide book on sale at the back of St Mary’s Pennard which is published by the church but there is a vast amount of information on file and logged with the City and County of Swansea Archives that give a very full picture of these four fine churches.

As well as the Pennard Church Booklet, leaflets on Ilston and Nicholaston Churhes are available in the back of the churches.
