Swansea Ramblers Walk
Knelston to Hardings Down and Old Henllys
16th June 2010
Leader: Gail Allen
We started in Knelston but soon were trying to work out why a Double-decker London Bus was going to Kensington via Gower! Another hot, sunny summer's day for a good walk in the countryside. We ascended Hardings Down where we had lovely coastal views. After the walk it was back to the Tea Rooms for refreshments.
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.

Arrived in Knelston but could we have caught the bus?
Hmmm! Maybe not! Think the driver must have got lost !
Gail welcomes Gary who has started walking with us
Paul and Alex discuss the route
They didn't like the look of us!
...or have they decided to join us!
Just walked past one of the standing stones on the walk

Beautiful day to be out in the countryside
Zetta tells Gary more about our group
Don't think she'll use the stile. Can we pass you please ?
Took some persuasion to move her !
Gordon checking the coast is clear
Now there's a herd to get through !.

Everyone enjoying the walk
Beautiful little glade for tea
More sheep again
They don't want to join us this time
