Swansea Ramblers Walk


Tawe Corridor

22nd August 2020

Leader: Chris Rees




Chris led a walk after the first COVID lockdown.  Starting near the Liberty Stadium, we were struck by a short heavy shower which didn't dampen our spirits, just everything else!  We followed the Tawe downstream to the barrage then crossed via the Trafalgar Bridge.  Stopped for lunch by the entrance to the marina before making our way upstream to White Rock.

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.
