Swansea Ramblers Walk
Cornwall Weekend Away
Towen Cross to Perranporth
18th May 2013
Leader: Mark Wolle
Our annual weekend away took us to Newquay in Cornwall where we enjoyed good sunny weather for some really interesting coastal walking. Mark used to work in the area so was able to tell us about the history and geology of Cornwall.
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.
