Swansea Ramblers Walk


Nicholaston & Oxwich

23rd November 2013

Leader: Christine Rimmer




Christine took us on another of our enjoyable Swansea Ramblers' Gower walks which started in Penmaen and passed through Nicholaston Woods then across the dunes to the Nicholaston Bridge that we built for the Wales Coast Path.  Having enjoyed lunch on the beach, we made our way back across the sands and marvelled at the sand formations left by the tide.  After the walk we headed down to The Gower Inn at Parkmill for coffee.  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.
