Swansea Ramblers Walk


Peter Thomas Memorial Walk

9th August 2009

Leader: Lynn Smith & Breda Regan




The late Peter Thomas was the footpath officer for the Gower Society and Swansea Ramblers.  He was instrumental in setting up the Gower Way, a long distance path through the old Lordship of Gower which comprised much of Swansea and the Upper Swansea Valley. 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.
