Swansea Ramblers Walk


Llanrhidian to Bove Hill

1st June 2013

Leader: Terry John




Another Swansea Walk.  There and back again - only no Hobbits en-route just interesting snippets of history from Terry.  We visited the churchyard where Terry had been busy clearing ivy from a relative's grave then stopped to hear about the mill owner with a shady reputation.  We then saw the sites of a few other mills before visiting a heronry and climbing onto Bove Hill for stunning views.  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.
