Swansea Ramblers Walk
Glamorgan Ramblers Area
8th May 2011
Leader: Roger Jones
It was the turn of Swansea Ramblers to lead the other Ramblers' Groups in the Glamorgan Area on our annual joint walk.
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.

Swansea Ramblers hosted the walk as part of our 30th anniversary celebrations
58 Ramblers from all over Glamorgan joined this walk.
Others did the 15 or 6 mile walks
Walking to the Berry Reserve footpath
On way to Berry
We walked through varied terrain
and had a few stiles to cross
Generally dry underfoot though
Descending to Berry
Stiles made the group stretch out over a long distance
Berry Reserve up ahead
But still stretched out into the distance!
Cefn Bryn behind us
Coming into the hamlet of Berry
Time for a tea break
Then off again towards Millwood
Hardings Down and Llanmadoc Down in the distance
Long queue of Ramblers!
Crossing the style into Millwood
Back out the other side at Penrice Estate
Walking up the drive to the two castles
Penrice old and new castles
The lake below the house with Oxwich in the distance
Re-grouping by the house
Setting off again
Old trees on the estate
The residents were bewildered to see so many walkers
Went past the folly
View of Oxwich from the high path in Nicholaston
Going through Nicholaston Woods
More views of Oxwich Bay
Great Tor with Three Cliffs in the distance
Still some bluebells around
Shall I take the short cut to Penmaen?
Walking the coast path
Great Tor ahead
Still stretched out into a column of Ramblers
Tea stop above The Great Tor
Heading for the site of Penmaen Castle
Three Cliffs Bay
Rain not far off now!
Had a shower as we climbed Cefn Bryn to the Gower Way marker
Rhossili Down in the distance
Not far to go
Starting the descent to the King Arthur
Journey's end in sight
Back in sunshine
We had a buffet celebration for our 30th anniversary
