Swansea Ramblers Walk
Gunpowder, Reason & No Plot
23rd February 2013
Leader: Lynne Esson
Lynne took us on a journey of discovery to see a riverside walk where gunpowder used to be made. A new interpretation trail with audio information follows the river upstream. We had a lovely 5 mile walk and went back to the Angel Inn for coffee and other beverages. This was another in the successful series of short Saturday walks that more and more people are discovering.
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.
