Swansea Ramblers Walk
Sker Point and Kenfig National Nature Reserve
21st November 2020
Leader: Mike & Joanna Craddock
Swansea Ramblers had a walk at Kenfig National Nature Reserve. Some of the paths were under water again but we stayed on the high ground to keep our feet dry!
The sea looked rough with the wind blowing strongly. We stopped at Sker Point for lunch. Some of us went the short distance over the rocks to pay our respects at the memorial to the Mumbles Lifeboat disaster of 23rd April, 1947. We then headed inland to circle back to the cars.
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.

Setting off from the start
Kenfig Pool in the distance
Mike is selecting a route to keep us dry!
The higher paths on the sand ridges are above the water
The lower paths are flooded
Getting closer to the beach
Waves are strong in today's wind
Heading for Sker Point
Firmly attached to the rocks is the sea-washed memorial to the 1947 Mumbles Lifeboat disaster
Through farmland now
And a short stretch on the road
Then more fields
And almost back to the start
