Swansea Ramblers Walk
Coffee at Caswell
(Southgate in the Snow)
9th January 2010
Leader: Mark Wolle
Mark took us on a walk from Southgate to Caswell and back. The ground was covered in snow and we had to watch out for slippery ice! We stopped off at the cafe in Caswell for a nice hot drink before making our way back to Southgate.
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.
