Swansea Ramblers Walk


Penllergare Estate

15th November 2009

Leader: Merfyn Williams




Merfyn is one of our leaders and also a volunteer helping to restore the historic estate of the Dillwyn family.  The charitable trust has received lottery funding to create paths for the public to enjoy the natural area.  They are always looking for volunteers to join in the restoration so if you fancy helping out then contact the trust.  Mind you get the spelling right though!!  The area is spelled in the Welsh manner - Penllergaer but the historic estate uses the DIllwyn spelling of Penllergare.  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.
