Swansea Ramblers Walk
(A Stepping Stones Short Walk)
24th April 2010
Leader: Gail Allen
Gail led us along the Neath Canal from Briton Ferry on a lovely spring day with the flowers in bloom. We saw a snake swimming in the river which made a change to the usual Mallards! We walked so far north on the canal towpath then turned around and retraced our steps back to the start.
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.

Canal makes for easy relaxed walking
Have to pass under a number of bridges
A snake decided it didn't like our company
Neither did the mallards
Joggers and families enjoy this stretch of canal near Neath
So does a heron
... and the very young - chauffeured in style
Starting on our way back along the canal
Over the bridge near Giants Grave
Everyone still enjoying it
Five minutes back to the cars!
