Swansea Ramblers Walk


Dunster long walk

16th October 2016

Leader: Cathy




Forty of our members got together to spend a weekend walking in the Dunster area of Somerset.  Our group doesn't just walk but has a thriving social element to it of which this weekend was a part.  We enjoyed the walking in the day then the meals and get together in the night.  Evening meals were enjoyed at the Yarn Market Hotel then the rest of the evening was a fun get together at a local pub.  We had wonderful views of Exmoor National Park but also across the Bristol Channel to Souh Wales and even Swansea!  Our thanks go to the organisers who made it all possible.  Swansea Ramblers offer a range of walks for most abilities from the long strenuous mountain walks for the experienced walker to the short, easy lowland walks where maybe you'd like to explore walking for the first time with a friendly group of people.  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.
