Swansea Ramblers Walk


Henrhyd Waterfall

28th April 2013

Leader: Gail Allen




Gail took us through the Geopark of Nant Llech.  This stream runs through a deep gorge and at its eastern end is the wonderful Henrhyd Falls that pours water from high above the gorge.  We had parked in the Pen y Cae Inn and they made us welcome afterwards when we went in to buy refreshments.  Everyone had a chance to socialise and enjoy a great day out with Swansea Ramblers.  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.
