Swansea Ramblers Walk
North Gower Circular
19th February 2014
Leader: Steve & Julia Robson
Steve and Julia led another of their enjoyable midweek walks in the North Gower area. Starting from Cwm Ivy, the group made their way over the side of Llanmadoc Down, through Cheriton, over to Stembridge and onto Weobley Castle for a lunch stop. Returning via Llanmorlais, the weather remained dry but was quite misty. Steve and Julia hope to arrange more midweek walks over the summer so why not join a walk during the week and experience one of these Swansea Ramblers events?
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.

Passing through Llanmadoc
Views of Cheriton Pill, Whiteford Point
and Loughor Estuary from above Llanmadoc
Visiting the ruins of the old Llanmadoc School
Descending Llanmadoc Down
Walked along a hidden, mystical green lane
Don't think that tree is wide enough to hide behind!
Walking towards Cheriton Church
Plenty of water in the river
Merfyn leads the way from the pottery
The ancient pack horse bridge suffered in the recent floods
Will need repairs on this listed monument
Snowdrops herald the coming of Spring
and Spring will be most welcome
- after all these storms!
Heading for Stembridge
Coming up to the main road
Then thankfully off the road through the farm
and down to Weobley Castle
Lunch below the castle
with good views over the estuary
Whiteford Point in the distance
