Swansea Ramblers Walk


Fendrod to Liberty Stadium
An Evening Stroll

3rd September 2015

Leader: Colin Warlow




Colin took us on a pilgrimage to the statue of Ivor Allchurch outside Liberty Stadium.  We set off from Fendrod Lake Car Park and had a pleasant walk around the lake then followed the River Fendrod to the Tawe.  We headed along the cycle path to Liberty Stadium where we touched the boots of Ivor for luck then made our way back before it got dark!  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.
