Swansea Ramblers Walk
Boxing Day Walk to Three Cliffs and Cefn Bryn
26th December 2013
Leader: Steve Robson
Steve & Julia took us on a Boxing Day Gower walk from Green Cwm to Three Cliffs Bay and up onto Cefn Bryn. It was a fine sunny day and a pleasure to be out. We had fine views of Pennard Castle, Three Cliffs Bay, a stop at Penmaen Castle for tea then along the coast through to Nicholaston and up onto Cefn Bryn for lunch. Descending into Green Cwm, we made our way back to their cottage for delicious home made mince pies, wonderful stollen and a glass of mulled wine. Our new walkers couldn't believe the fun they'd had on this Swansea walk!
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?

Starting from Park Wood Forestry Car Park
Wrapped up warm against the cold and frosty morning
Heading down the lane to Parkmill
Sunshine came out to join us
Crossing the stream at Parkmill
Didn't fancy wading throught the swollen stream
Heading for Three Cliffs Bay
Wonderful to be out!
and it's warming up a little, now the sun's out
Along the boardwalk - but nobody's bored! (sorry!)
Pennard Castle high above us
Approaching Nott Hill
...and the river we have to cross!
Thank goodness for these ancient stepping stones
Trust some of them to pose!
Another half an hour and the stones would be under water!
Walking the marsh path
Not so deep here!
Come on Walter!
Walter makes our new walkers welcome
All across and ready for the climb
Stepping stones busy today
He promised that would be the last climb!

Oxwich in the distance
Which coast path is this?
The Wales Coast Path!
Climbing onto Cefn Bryn
Hang on! Didn't he say we'd done all the climbing!
But look at the view!
A Gower Walk is always worth doing
- when you are at the top!
Better views of Three Cliffs

Finished our lunch near the Gower Way Stone
What better view could you ask for!

Mince pies at the ready!
