Swansea Ramblers Walk


Corntown, Ewenny and St Bride's Major

8th March 2020

Leader: Alison Broady




On one of our last walks before the Coronavirus Lockdown, we visited Corntown and headed over to St Brides Major before visiting the priory of Ewenny.  Sunshine and showers, including hailstones didn't dampen our fun, just our clothes and everything else!

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.

Coed y Bwl closed so no Daffodil walk!

But plenty of Primroses to make up for it

Yes! We had a soaking and had to shelter from the Hailstones
