Swansea Ramblers Walk
In the Footsteps of Dylan Thomas
25th July 2010
Leader: Zetta Flew
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.
Leader: Zetta Flew
Walking below Laugharne Castle towards Dylan's Boathouse
Sea Lavender with the Boathouse in the background
Getting nearer Dylan's world famous house
Dylan's writing shed above the estuary
Beautiful views above the boathouse
Maybe we'll go in next time
A rabbit watched us as we passed
Left Laugharne behind and heading for Delacorse Farm
Old tree grew around a stone wall that has now vanished
At Delacorse the path is hidden in the garden
Beautiful views of the estuary
Trust Walter to find an unusual place to have tea!
The rest of us just made do with a grass ledge
St Martin's Wood is a fairly new Woodland Trust site
Different sorts of butterflies can be seen in the wood
Lynne leads the way through the grassland section of the young wood
Descending through the woodland to the graveyard
Zetta pays homage to Dylan Thomas
Most of the group have never been here before
Heading out of Laugharne again
Looks like we've got a new leader
... and new back markers
Climbing the gentle slope above the village of Broadway
The climb gives us wonderful views over Carmarthen Bay of ....
... Caldy Island
... and Worms Head
Carmarthenshire Council are putting up a lot of new sign posts
Walter crossing a mown hay field of clover
This pony wants Walter's apple!
Arrived in the village of Llansadwrnen for lunch
Some of us had a look inside the church
Stained glass over the altar
More sea views from here
Leaving Llansadwrnen behind
Descending to the hamlet of Ewe
Walter makes friends with the sheep
Peter jumps across a stream
Leaving the A4066 for St John's Hill
Have to climb ....
... and then descend !
Onto the coast path
Salt House Farm in the distance
Fine views from St John's Hill towards Ferryside and Cefn Sidan
Apparently non-local cockle pickers have descended on Laugharne
Boat House comes back into view
Are these two herons about to have a duel?
Back to Laugharne
Group enjoy a well earned drink in The Carpenters Arms, Broadway
