NEXT WALK - Ystradfellte Waterfalls Hike - Sunday, April 28th

This is the most spectacular hike going. The hiking route goes behind a waterfall at one point, past others and you have the option of walking over the top of a waterfall too. Checkout the photos from previous years. These are some of the biggest waterfalls outside Scotland. The area is riddled with caves (including Britains 2nd longest at 68km). We'll visit a large one on our hike which stretches for half a mile or more underground. There is the option of going swimming if you fancy it in the plunge pool of one or more waterfalls. It's traditional! Come along to JCs to sign up ASAP.

Last Hike's Recap

As you can see, we had glorious sunshine all day, although there was a haze off in the distance which blocked the views a little. It didn't stop the sun giving us sunburn though! We had some magnificant views of Rhossili Bay, Whitford National Nature Reserve, Lambs, Young Foals and all of North Gower. We also explored mud-encrusted boats and Woebley Castle (including dungeon thing).

Next Social - End of Term Meal - ALL WELCOME

The time and location is to be confirmed, but we're planning on an End of Term meal to finish off the year in style. Stay tuned for announcements.
