Swansea Ramblers Walk


Dunvant and surrounding area

19th September 2020

Leader: Peter Jones




Peter led us on a lovely walk which followed the Gower Way for a while then crossed to the multi-user path. Here we accessed paths just south of Waunarlwydd to reach Cwmllwyd Wood.  We had great views in an area which is known to the locals but not much explored by the wider public.

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.
