Swansea Ramblers Walk
Pontardawe to Llangiwg Church
11th December 2021
Leader: Mike Clarke
Mike led us to the ancient church of Llangiwg. The weather when we started was drizzling and it didn't stop all day. Despite the weather, 20 of us came out to enjoy the walk. We started along the Tawe riverside then went through the town centre to follow the Upper Clydach River. We ascended to the golf course and stopped for lunch at the historic Llangiwg Church. Everyone enjoyed the walk despite the rain.
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?

Setting off in the drizzle
Twenty of us in the rain
Walked South along the Tawe
Mike stops to point out all the Bracket Fungi
Across the playing fields
Regrouping before the subway
Then briefly joining the canal
The ducks came over to see us
The main crossroads in Pontardawe
Heading north towards the Upper Clydach River
A wet day but everybody is enjoying the walk
Upper Clydach River
We crossed over to the other side of the river
And head towards the golf course
Crossing the golf course
Lunch outside Llangiwg Church
Then we set off on the return journey
And follow the canal to Clydach
We even saw a kingfisher!
