Swansea Ramblers Walk


Countryside and Coast at Pennard

5th December 2020

Leader: Andrew Morgan




The weather stopped raining in the car park so we were able to enjoy a dry walk.  There was still some mud to cross but we were wearing boots so it didn't matter.  We started by walking across fields before descending to Bishopston Valley.  We followed the river downstream to Pwlldu where we had lunch on the beach.  Then there was a bit of climbing to the cliff top before descending near Graves End.  The last climb gave us coastal views east and west along the limestone cliffs.

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.
