Swansea Ramblers Walk
Pub Lunch at Parkmill
- with a walk thrown in as well
26th January 2013
Leader: Bob Denley
Bob led us on a walk through the woods in Parkmill, starting at the Gower Inn, past Shepherds and Parkmill Heritage Centre and up to Green Cwm. We turned right to go behind the Celtic spring, now a Welsh Water pumping Station and climbed Willoxton Cwm to reach Lunnon. It was a bit too muddy to descend to Ilston Cwm so we took the path down to Parkmill and back along the road.
We were joined yet again by new walkers who wanted to do some walking.
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.

Leaving the Gower Inn
Crossing to the woods
Coming through the wooded hillside
17 of us out today
Mud? - What mud?
Where Bob goes we follow - mud or not!
On the bridge is evidence of how high the flood water came
About to cross back over the road
Aparently the flood here was up to your knees!
Still a lot of water about
Heading for Green Cwm - Don't like the look of that sign!
At Green Cwm we turned right for Willoxton Cwm
And around the Welsh Water facility
Heading for Lunnon
Not long to go for a pub lunch
Two more stiles
and into a muddy field
not that people minded
and Bob knows how to find the mud!
This horse wanted to play
Picturesque narrow path to Parkmill
They had snow here as well then
Looking a little sorry for himself now
Back to the Gower Inn for a well deserved pub lunch
(and a newly installed Pay & Display machine so can't stay long!)
