Swansea Ramblers Walk


Cefn Cribwr
Ramblers festival of winter walks

28th December 2014

Leader: Roger Brown




Roger led us on a fine winter's day around the old colliery area of Cefn Cribwr where a mining disaster claimed the lives of miners in the 19th Century.  This walk was part of Swansea Ramblers contribution to the national festival of winter walks held this time each year.  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.
