Swansea Ramblers Walk


Mynydd Myddfai

8th October 2017

Leader: Tim Gronow




Swansea Ramblers travelled to Carmarthenshire to revisit the fantastic area above the Usk Reservoir.  Here, hundreds of years ago, the Romans established an important camp to control the main highway over the mountain.  Little today remains to be seen but to the trained eye, the shape of the land still reveals the position of the fort that once was home to many soldiers in this remote area of Wales.  Today, the road is no longer used except by intrepid Ramblers who come to admire the incredible views of the Brecon Becons and beyond.  A walk not to be missed when you next see it on the Swansea Ramblers programme.    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.
