Swansea Ramblers Walk
Tim's Boxing Day Walk
26th December 2009
Leader: Tim Gronow
Swansea Ramblers always like to walk off the Christmas excesses with a walk on Boxing Day. Tim led the walk again this year and we went through Barlands Common, always a place to find mud! It rained on the way so we were glad to find some cover in Moorlakes Wood but by the time we got to Ilston the rain had stopped. We passed through Green Cwm and Kittle before arriving back at Barlands.
Swansea Ramblers offer a range of walks for most abilities.
Try an easy walk of 2-3 hours or our longer strenuous mountain walks for the experienced walker.
Maybe you'd like to explore walking for the first time with a friendly group of people?
- Come with Swansea Ramblers!
If you'd like to try a Swansea walk then do come along and find out what the great outdoors is all about.
It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.
You'll be very welcome to join us for three free walks.
If you enjoy walking with us and want to come on even more of our walks, just become a member.
When you join us for a Swansea Walk, ask us about the other walks and social events we do.
