Swansea Ramblers Walk


Ogmore Circular

17th November 2013

Leader: Jeff Francis




Jeff led us on a cold day with some showers from Ogmore Castle up onto the golf course.  We made our way to St Brides where we walked through the churchyard and onto the main road.  We stopped by the village pond to inspect the old water pump then had a refreshment stop. Some sat by the pond while others went for coffee and cakes in the Farmers Arms.  Heading down to Dunraven Bay, we explored the hidden walled garden and went to the Heritage Coast viewpoint before visiting the site of the demolished mansion.  We then made our way along the Wales Coast Path back to Ogmore as the rain set in again.  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.
