Swansea Ramblers Walk
A Gowerton Circular
19th June 2010
Leader: Peter Jones
The sunny weather continued for Peter as he led us on a walk in the Gowerton area. We walked through hay meadows with beautiful flowers. We picked up the Gower way and followed it for a while. Another lovely day ut in the countryside.
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.
