Swansea Ramblers Walk


Pennard, Parkmill Woods, Castle and Coast Path

23rd October 2021

Leader: Dave Stephens




Swansea Ramblers had a lovely five-mile walk from Pennard.  Despite the cold weather and the strong, cold wind, 25 of us enjoyed a walk in a scenic area with lots to see.  We went into Parkmill Valley and walked through the woods before ascending again and stopping at Pennard Castle for a tea break.

We walked along the Wales Coast Path then descended to Pobbles Beach where we had lunch.  A short but steepish climb after lunch took us further on our journey along the coast path.  From the top, it was fairly level walking back to Pennard.  Some of us then had coffee outside the Three Cliffs Coffee shop.

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.
