Swansea Ramblers Walk


Ferryside Walk joint with Bridgend Ramblers

4th October 2009

Leader: Zetta Flew




Zetta Flew of Swansea Ramblers led a joint walk with Bridgend Ramblers from Ferryside along the estuary foreshore and over to General Picton's ruined Iscoed Mansion.  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.
