Swansea Ramblers Walk


Coffee at Caswell
(Southgate in the Snow)

9th January 2010

Leader: Mark Wolle




Mark took us on a walk from Southgate to Caswell and back.  The ground was covered in snow and we had to watch out for slippery ice!  We stopped off at the cafe in Caswell for a nice hot drink before making our way back to Southgate.   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.
