Come along to celebrate the West Wales group’s 10th anniversary by re-tracing the steps of our first walk at Ferryside in January 2010.
Ferryside is named after the ferry that has run from there since ancient times across the Towy Estuary to Llansteffan. This six mile moderate (one steep climb up steps, partly with a handrails and a few other steady climbs and descents) walk rewards us with superb panoramic view across salt marshes, Pembrey Forest and the Gower. We will visit an interesting hill-top village (Llansaint) with a distinctive street pattern focusing on the church. We will also pass the aptly named Pengay Farm, with a bell dated 1760 from a wrecked Dutch ship and visit the 13th century St Ishmael’s Church, with it’s idyllic graveyard overlooking the Estuary.
Likely to be very muddy in places, and includes a number of stiles.
Bring a packed lunch.
There will be an opportunity to celebrate the anniversary with a cuppa or something stronger nearby at the end. Former members & friends are most welcome to join us to mark this milestone at the end of the walk - just e-mail [email protected] for details.
NB Very important: A copy of Neil Barry's report following the inaugural walk on 4th January 2010 can be found here.
I think it's a really interesting read and as per the last line, this group has indeed gone from strength to strength.
