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?
