Swansea Ramblers Walk


Around Talybont Reservoir

28th July 2013

Leader: Karen Gibbs




Karen took a party of us to Talybont where we saw the stunning scenery and enjoyed a walk by the reservoir.  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.
