Swansea Ramblers Walk
17th November 2013
Leader: Jeff Francis
Jeff led us on a cold day with some showers from Ogmore Castle up onto the golf course. We made our way to St Brides where we walked through the churchyard and onto the main road.
We stopped by the village pond to inspect the old water pump then had a refreshment stop. Some sat by the pond while others went for coffee and cakes in the Farmers Arms. Heading down to Dunraven Bay, we explored the hidden walled garden and went to the Heritage Coast viewpoint before visiting the site of the demolished mansion. We then made our way along the Wales Coast Path back to Ogmore as the rain set in again.
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?
