Swansea Ramblers Walk
Kenfig National Nature Reserve
30th October 2021
Leaders: Mike and Joanna Craddock
Mike and Joanna led us on a walk through the nature reserve. Just as we started, a heavy shower of rain fell! Reaching the beach, we turned east and stopped for lunch overlooking the place where the Mumbles Lifeboat came ashore after the disaster of 1947. We then went inland, past the historic Sker House and across the golf course. We made our way back through farmland.
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?

Rain hit us as soon as we started
Rain didn't stop us
Then the sun came out
Dry but cold and windy
Reached the beach
Long stretch of beach
Somebody had been re-arranging the stones!
Heading east from the beach to the more rocky foreshore
This marks the end of Swansea Bay
The memorial plaque to the 1947 Mumbles Lifeboat Disaster
The group have lunch in sight of the memorial
Sker House is a historic mansion
Think it's raining in the channel!
Mike tells us more about the walk before we cross the golf course
More rain and more companions!
Just a little rain
Which just kept falling
But we were not disheartened!
Returned through farmland
Too wet to go that way!
Not far now - and it's stopped raining
Back at last and the rain has finished
