Swansea Ramblers Walk
24th January 2010
Leader: John Ashley
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.

Pleasant walking in an historical area
Crossing the Gwendraeth Fach
Useful signpost? Well it tells you the way to everywhere!
Well everyone seems happy despite the climb!
Emerging onto the busy A484 Carmarthen - Kidwelly Road

Reached Llwyn y Barcud
and the odd very short diversion to avoid the track in front of the house
Walking the hilltop lane
Ffos Las Racecourse in the background
John stops to see if this is the odds on favourite
Still lots to see!
Good views as we descend
Prehistoric stone in field
Summer Way bridleway provides good walking
Nearly back at Kidwelly

Footpath into what looks like a private yard to the road
and no footpath sign!

Back to the car park - then onto the pub!
