Swansea Ramblers Walk


Mumbles Way
Part 3 – The Last Bit

17th August 2013

Leader: Andrew Morgan & Zetta Flew




A Swansea Walk to finish the last stretch of the Mumbles Way.  The weather didn't look too good but we set off in good spirits to complete the third and final leg of the Mumbles Way.

Had a few showers en-route but the rain really hit us on Mumbles Hill.  Castellemare was used to wet tourists coming in out of the rain so took it in their stride when a bunch of very wet walkers came in for coffee and cake.

When the rain stopped we made our way towards Mumbles but the next shower came down so it was into the pub to wait for that one to pass!



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.
