Swansea Ramblers Walk
A 'Figure of Eight' walk
12th August 2010
Leader: Peter Jones
Peter led a 'Figure of Eight' walk, first to the remains of Dunvant Brickworks then returned to the start point before setting off in a different direction to explore another part of Dunvant.
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?

Peter tells us about the walk
Start off on the Clyne Valley Cycle Path at Dunvant
Then up the main road out of Dunvant Square
A bit of a climb to warm us up
Then down Highland Terrace
Peter leads us along the old track towards the brickwork site
Everyone is enjoying the walk
This is a hidden lane that most people drive past unaware
Nice evening for the walk
Free range eggs for sale
She wasn't happy to sell them though!
Leaving the chickens behind
Terry explains about the area and Peter checks the brickwork brochure
The undergrowth has grown up around the pond over the years
Walked around the back of the pond
Well ! We had to find some bricks!
Back onto the cycle path towards the cars
Peter passes a National Cycle Route signpost
Gone past the cars in the second part of the figure of eight walk
Into the woods behind Dunvant Square
Lot of mud since we had all that rain
Nearly out of the mud!
There! Back on terra firma!
And onto Killan Road
Flowers planted on the road side
Back to Dunvant Square
Walk's over - where's the pub?
Over to the Railway Inn at Killay for real ale
