Swansea Ramblers Walk
A Daffodil Walk
A coach trip with two walks
to see many 'hosts of Golden Daffodils'
12th March 2022
Swansea Ramblers had another of our social events, this time combined with a walk in Gloucester to see the daffodils.
We hired a coach which took us to the village of Kempley.
Here there are thousands of Daffodils and we hired the local guides to take us on a morning walk through them.
We then returned to the village hall where they had laid on a feast for us to enjoy.
After lunch they led us on a second walk to the historic church in Kempley where wonderful medieval wall paintings were discovered hidden under the lime wash on the walls.
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!

Gathered at the village hall for the morning walk
We had a sunny day to see the flowers
And there were a lot of us looking forward to seeing the Daffodils
The Malvern Hills are in the distance
Our guide told us a bit about the history of the village
Then we continued towards the Daffodils
And found some!
But lots more to come
A cold day but the spring sunshine kept off the chill
Joining the long distance path called - The Daffodil Way!
Now we are amongst the hosts!
The woods were a bit muddy but we all enjoyed
Heading north to eventually pass over the M50
Into Dymock Forest
Then back to Kempley
We had a lovely buffet laid on for us...
Now for the afternoon walk
We need to cross the fields to reach the original Kempley Church
This is the historic church
A new church was built nearer the village
But this one has a surprise for us
Medieval wall paintings
Some interesting old tombstones
Then it's back the way we came
A bit muddy here
Back to Kempley and the 'new' church
Which is also quite ornate
But now its time to go and make our way home.
Yet another successful day arranged by our social committee
