Swansea Ramblers Walk
16th April 2016
Leader: Richard Beale
Swansea Ramblers had another enjoyable weekend away. Over 40 people booked on to walk and socialise in the Hereford area. Based in Leominster at the Talbot Hotel, we had a long and a short walk each day to provide different walking opportunities to suit most tastes. We had meals out together in the evening then the fun continued as we serenaded the English locals with some fine old Welsh hymns and arias. The first morning even presented us with a heavy flurry of snow which turned the hills white.
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.

Snow on the ground
which didn't deter him!
A few stiles to cross
And snow to enjoy
Atmospheric to see snow
But it didn't last
A fine range of farm buildings
Strange looking sheep?
Well he is with all the other sheep
A landscape garden with a bridge
And a weir
All in the grounds of Downton Castle
Ancient Gnarled trees
Another bridge to cross
Expansive views again
Letting the others catch up
Primroses in flower
Reached the Village of Burrington
No time to stop for refreshments
Ancient pollarded avenue
Taking stock of the mud we crossed
Into the Sun Inn for refreshments
And a chance to socialise
