Swansea Ramblers Walk


North Gower Coast and Valleys

11th August 2012

Leader: Bob Denley




Bob Denley led us on another of his excellent walks. We explored the countryside of North Gower from Llanrhidian to Leason and along the coast path to Landimore.

At Cheriton Pill we looked at the stepping stones on the coast path. Swansea Ramblers had donated funds to help with their construction.

The return journey started at Cheriton and went inland to Stembridge.  The walk descended again to the coast path for the final leg that saw us enjoying refreshments in the Dolphin Inn at Llanrhidian.



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.
