Swansea Ramblers Walk


Tim's Boxing Day Walk

26th December 2009

Leader: Tim Gronow




Swansea Ramblers always like to walk off the Christmas excesses with a walk on Boxing Day.  Tim led the walk again this year and we went through Barlands Common, always a place to find mud!  It rained on the way so we were glad to find some cover in Moorlakes Wood but by the time we got to Ilston the rain had stopped.  We passed through Green Cwm and Kittle before arriving back at Barlands.  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.
