Swansea Ramblers Walk


Limeslade in January

25th January 2014

Leader: Jo Shercliff




Swansea Ramblers went on a Gower walk starting from Limeslade and crossing the top of the cliffs.  Gower walking in winter can be muddy but this Gower stroll went across the exposed headland during some bad weather that made the going hard.  About 37 of us started off and some came with us only to Langland where we stopped for tea.  The stalwarts set off for Caswell along the top path again.  A Gower hike can be fun in good weather but we didn't mind the bad weather anyway as we passed the storm damaged remains of the Caswell cafe and began our return journey.  Some of us after the walk went to Castellemare for coffee to warm up after a windy, showery walk in Gower.



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?
