Ramblers help to clear bridleway RN15 in Cwm Clydach

30th March 2010

Swansea Ramblers footpath work party go out regularly with the council to help clear paths for the public.   We turned out on a very wet and VERY muddy day to clear a bridleway in the northernmost section of the County of Swansea.   The council are planning to open up a route and publish leaflets of this walk.   Our volunteers braved the mist, rain and slippery mud to help clear this very scenic path which is little known.
