Swansea Ramblers Walk


Crymlyn Burrows & Neath Canal

5th October 2013

Leader: Myra Lewis




Myra took us for a stroll by bus!  We caught a bus from Sainsbury's in Swansea and got off by Amazon.  We explored Crymlyn Burrows before making our way to the Neath Canal for a lovely walk into Neath for the Food Fayre.  Afterwards we caught another bus back to Swansea.  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.
