Swansea Ramblers Walk


Cwm Clydach, Mountains and a Lighthouse!

18th October 2020

Leader: John France




John led a walk from the nature reserve up onto the mountains where we visited one of the largest stone circles in Wales and even saw a lighthouse!

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.
