Swansea Ramblers Walk


Cwmcerdinen
(Pronounced Coom-Kerr-Deen-enn)

(Recced 8th September then with the group on 14th September)

08th September 2019

Leader: Linda Williams




Gail Allen was unavailable to lead her walk on 14th September so she asked Linda Williams to lead for her.  Here are some of the pictures taken on the recce ready for the walk, followed by photographs taken on the day.  Cwmcerdinen offers stunning scenery but being north of the M4, many potential walkers do not venture that way but we still had 20 members come along.  They were rewarded with fine weather, incredible views down the River Loughor and over the Estuary to North Gower.  We could even see Whiteford Lighthouse in the far distance as we enjoyed a sunny lunch on top of Cefn Drum around Maggie's Twr.  A fantastic walk that shoud be publicised more but the council leaflet is out of print and will not be renewed!

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.

Fewer numbers than our better known walks
