Swansea Ramblers Walk


Annual Glamorgan Area Walk

10th May 2009

Leader: Maesteg Group




Every year the Ramblers Groups in Glamorgan get together for a joint walk led in turn by one of the groups.  This time it was the turn of Maesteg Group who led us high above Maesteg through the forestry and over to the sea views above Margam Country Park.  If you'd like to try a walk then do come along and find out what all this Swansea Walking in the great outdoors is all about.  It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.  If you get the bug and want to walk or stroll regularly then you can also become a member.  Just ask us about the walks we do when you join us for a Swansea Walk.
