Swansea Ramblers Walk


Clydach and Swansea Canal

14th December 2013

Leader: Mike Clarke




Mike knows the hidden paths above Clydach which give us fine views over the Swansea Valley.  We set off from Coed Gwylim Park and followed the Swansea Canal before ascending above Clydach to discover the higher paths.  When we returned to the start we explored the community centre with its history of the area.  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.
