Walking on the Gower – Dec 2019

Walking on the Gower Peninsula

A trip to the Cwm Ivy bunkhouse provided a little relaxation before the Christmas mayhem. In a unique position with a beach on one side and salt marsh on the other, the bunkhouse was an ideal base for walking on the Gower. Members enjoyed a sense of isolation and the starry skies (also the underfloor heating and wood burner!).

Saturday saw the group take a breezy walk around the coast to Rhosili Bay then an even breezier return over the heights of Llanmadoc Hill (186m) before a choice of tea and scones at the community shop and cafe in Llanmadoc or a pint of Gower Ale at the Brittania Inn.

On Sunday the walk took in some historical interest with Arthur’s Stone, a burial mound dating from 2500 BC and then via the Gower Way to the spectacular Three Cliffs Bay.

Monday featured a short but pleasantly frosty walk around the headland from the bunkhouse. No seals but a lighthouse and plenty of birds!
