Swansea Ramblers Walk


Dunvant and Three Crosses

28th December 2013

Leader: Rob Johnston




Rob Johnston led a post-Christmas Gower walk through muddy and waterlogged countryside.  The walk was still very enjoyable and the sun came out to warm us.  We had terrific views down the Loughor Estuary and up onto the hills above the M4.  Everyone really enjoyed the day and many discovered a Gower Walk they had never done before.  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.
