Swansea Ramblers Walk


Rheola Forest & Melincourt Waterfall

30th April 2014

Leader: Richard Beale




Richard of Swansea Ramblers arranged a joint midweek walk with Neath Port Talbot Ramblers.  Visiting Rheola Forest, the group strolled along the Roman road, Sarn Helen, before visiting the waterfall at Melincourt.  We would like to provide more midweek walks so if you are a Ramblers member who would like to lead a walk for us, do email or phone the programme secretary.  Details are on the contact page of our web site.  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 and social events we do when you join us for a Swansea Walk.
