Swansea Ramblers Walk


New Year's Day

Penllergaer to Penllergare

1st January 2017

Leader: Roger Brown




We know how to start the New Year right!  A walk in northern Swansea, dodging the showers while enjoying every minute of a lovely walk.  We'll do it again next January when maybe it'll be drier!



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.
