Swansea Ramblers Walk


Graig Fawr & St Illtud's Walk

29th October 2017

Leader: Karen Gibbs




Swansea Ramblers visited Pontarddulais to ascend the hills to the north from where there are extensive views over the Loughor Estuary to North Gower.  We also stopped at Maggie's Twr, said to be built by a husband out of love for his wife!  We then passed by the site of the mining disaster of 1849.  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.
