Swansea Ramblers Walk


Cornwall Weekend Away
Towen Cross to Perranporth

18th May 2013

Leader: Mark Wolle




Our annual weekend away took us to Newquay in Cornwall where we enjoyed good sunny weather for some really interesting coastal walking.  Mark used to work in the area so was able to tell us about the history and geology of Cornwall.  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.
