Swansea Ramblers Walk


Cwm Clydach

5th September 2020

Leader: Linda Williams




We had a walk that took us onto farmland with views in the distance back to Swansea and Mumbles.  We stopped outside Gellionnen Chapel and saw the replica of the ancient stone that once was embedded in the wall but is now in Swansea Museum.  The return journey followed the River Clydach south from Pont Lechart.

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.

We started by ascending to the fields above the village.

These first fields can be very wet at times

And the views of Swansea Bay from the Graveyard
High in the hills, miles inland, you don't expect to see Mumbles Lighthouse

Quick! Let's get past it!
