Swansea Ramblers Walk


Tinkinswood Burial Chamber

23rd March 2013

Leader: Allan Harrison




We went on a walk with Cynon Valley Ramblers led by Allan Harrison.  It's good to walk with other Ramblers' groups to see where they like to walk and in return we lead walks in Gower for them.  Allan took us to see two burial chambers and on the way we had lots of mud to remind us of the bad weather we've been having.  It was bitterly cold but none of that heavy snow experienced in other parts of the UK.  We warmed up afterwards in The Red Lion where we socialised and had fun before making our way home.   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.
