Swansea Ramblers Walk


Kilvey and Swansea Vale

23rd January 2021

Leader: Ruth Harding




During lockdown, Swansea Ramblers haven't been able to get together for group walks but within our COVID-safe bubbles, members have been walking alone, keeping to Welsh Government Guidelines.  Ruth took advantage of dry weather to walk along the beach and turned north inland to Swansea Vale.  From there she ascended to the top of Kilvey Hill for fine views.  Thanks Ruth for sharing a few photos with us.

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.
