Swansea Ramblers Walk


Cefn Cribwr
Ramblers festival of winter walks

28th December 2014

Leader: Roger Brown




Roger led us on a fine winter's day around the old colliery area of Cefn Cribwr where a mining disaster claimed the lives of miners in the 19th Century.  This walk was part of Swansea Ramblers contribution to the national festival of winter walks held this time each year.



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.
