Clyne, Gower

The “Navigator” suggested a walk which would take in Clyne Gardens http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clyne_Gardens on the Gower as they wanted to look at established plants in the boggy area and which would be suitable for their home project. It would also be an opportunity to see the rhododendrons.

As I had a more up to date map, showing open access I was tasked to suggest a walk taking into the Gardens and Clyne Common. I can take the pressure.

Here’s the route.

We spent some time in the Gardens along with many dog walkers and families out enjoying the good weather. Following a coffee break we left Clyne Gardens and joined a path ascending to Clyne Farm (where I have camped a couple of times) and onto Clyne Common where the path cuts through the local golf club. The views were extensive both to the south and north.

A lunch stop was found and we then headed south across more open land before reaching the suburban area of Newton and Mumbles.

A path leading close to Oystermouth Castle was taken which led down to the shared path alongside Swansea Bay. It seemed most of Swansea were out for some fresh air.

The “Navigator” treated us to a lovely ice cream which was an enjoyable end to the walk
