Tidal, accessible for about two hours either side of low tide. Scramble, abseil or beach walk in.
Heading out of Swansea on Oystermouth Road, take the B4593 Mayals Road, just after the Woodman Inn.
Follow this through Mayals, Bishopston and Kittle until it heads right at Widegate. Go right, join the A4118 Gower Road (an alternative approach) and turn left. Follow for several miles through Parkmill: follow signs for Port Eynon. Eventually you'll see a signpost to Rhossili pointing right (near the countryman). Follow this to Rhossili. Parking in the village at the end of the road (expensive in summer).
Alternative parking at Rhossili village hall, near the start of the village, but please leave some money. Don't block driveways, and don't park in the bus stop.
From the car park, walk towards Worms Head for a few minutes. Where the path is closest to the edge, look right and back to see Trial Wall. Clamber down the often slippery bank to the base. Sheepbone Wall is at sea level, below this area. Scramble in or abseil. Or walk along the beach (path down to the beach near the car park).
