Swansea Ramblers Walk


Briton Ferry Woods

14th November 2020

Leader: Allyson Evans




Now that the COVID fire-break restrictions had been lifted, We went for a walk across the county border to re-visit Briton Ferry Woods.  You can see this woodland high above the M4 bridge at Briton Ferry.

From here we had a late autumnal display of colour and despite the rain, enjoyed a walk with high level views across Swansea Bay.  We joined the Neath Canal for a while then through Giants Grave to Jersey Park then back to the start.

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.
