Swansea Ramblers Walk
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.

As soon as we started from White Rock, the heavens opened!
Chris told us about the history of the area
But the rain didn't last long
and the sun came out
Then it rained again!
But stayed dry after that
Approaching Trafalgar Bridge
Just crossed the Tawe
Cormorants drying their wings
Chris points out another historic building
Crossing the Marina lock gate
Back along the Tawe by Sainsburys
We went past the Palace Theatre to the chapel with the Welsh 'Blarney' Stone
Back to the entrance of the copper works
We learn more about Copperopolis
and admire some of the memorials to the industry
and somebody really enjoyed the walk!
Come along and you may do too!
