Three Crosses (Welsh: Y Crwys) is a village located in the north east of the Gower Peninsula, South Wales. The village stands at a crossroad on the road from Swansea city centre, 6 miles (10km), to Penclawdd, 3 miles (5km), within Britain's first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the early 19th Century the village was home to a small coal mining community and today Three Crosses has developed as a 'dormitory village' for the City of Swansea.
The village may not be the largest community on the Gower peninsula, however it boasts the largest chapel on the Gower with the Capel Y Crwys Independent Chapel. The chapel is a Grade II listed building and the current chapel building was built in 1878 and extended in 1912. The village of Three Crosses has a history of non-conformism dating back to 1689 and the first chapel was built on the site in 1788. ....
