Swansea Ramblers Walk


Chester Walls

9th November 2014

Leader: Clive Scott




Swansea Ramblers' weekend away in Chester continued with a walk that stopped at the cathedral for the Remembrance Parade then continued along the historic walls.  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.
