& other interests of Tom Bennett 

Volume One covers   

The above photograph shows the HELVETIA remains on Rhossili Beach. Gower.  It is the most photographed of all the intertidal shipwrecks to be found around the British coastline.  What the author finds of more interest is that beneath the same sand a few miles NW is the lost treasure of Squire Mansel of Henllys.  In the process of salvaging a treasure ship in 1647, he lost most of it trying to get it ashore!   Read the full story in this well researched book   Researched by TOM BENNETT.

However one book that covers intertidal wrecks on Gower is the following.  It also lists for the first time some of the wrecks around the Rhossili coast pre 1802.
