Swansea Ramblers Walk
8th May 2010
Leader: Alan Bailey
While some of us were on group trip to the Lake District, some of our members had a more local walk at Oxwich. Alan led from Millwood to Oxwich Castle then around Oxwich Point to descend through the woodland to Oxwich. We saw the retired lifeboat beached on the foreshore before going through the national nature reserve to the new coast path bridge over Nicholaston Pill.
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.
