North Eastern Gower's Hidden Valley

11 Nov 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

Russ has led our November walk for some years now and he always manages to summon up dry weather.The forecast earlier in the week had been for showers all day but a little hocus pocus from Russ, plus a sprinkling of fairy dust and a (no ) rain dance/Strictly strut around his lounge brought the desired effect, a lovely dry autumn day.

From here we entered Kenwyn Churchyard where Martin pointed out various different Commonwealth Graves from different eras....
