Swansea Ramblers Walk


Briton Ferry
(A Stepping Stones Short Walk)

24th April 2010

Leader: Gail Allen




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.
