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.
