Carmarthen and District Ramblers

The Carmarthen and District Ramblers' Group was formed in 1974.  We are a friendly group and are always happy to welcome new members.

As well as local walks in our lovely Carmarthenshire countryside, we travel into Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, the Gower Peninsula, the Black Mountain, and the Brecon Beacons to enjoy an amazing variety of scenery.  On most programmes we also offer two or three day walking adventures on long distance paths in Wales.  Some members have completed the Dyfi Way, Glyndwr's Way, the Ardudwy Way, the Cotswold Way, and Offa's Dyke National Trail.

We offer one or two walks every weekend.  On the first and third Saturday of the month we usually have a shorter walk, and on most Sundays we enjoy longer walks.  View our Walks Programme for details and join us for a walk!  Walks are open to anyone, including visitors on holiday, and newcomers are especially welcome.  After walking with us a few times you should consider joining the Ramblers to enjoy a range of membership benefits.

Our group membership as of 1 October 2017 is 91 members.

Brechfa West Windfarm Project
Construction of a 28 turbine wind farm in Brechfa Forest is now underway, beginning in October 2016 and continuing for 20 months.  The installed capacity of the project will be 57.4 megawatts (MW) and generate the equivalent domestic needs of around 38,800 average UK households.  While the work is going on Brechfa Forest will remain largely open, but some sections will be formally closed or restricted as construction work takes place.  

Any members planning to walk in the Brechfa Forest will want to know about the current closure situation.  One option is to register to receive updates sent to your mobile.  To do this text:  WINDFARM to 88882.
Another option is to check the Brechfa Wind Farm project website for updates:  https://www.innogy.com/brechfaforest
A map which you can download, showing the affected area and footpaths that may be closed at times, is available on this site.
The Walking Partnership
Carmarthen & District Ramblers is a member of The Walking Partnership. This partnership, supported by Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, provides direct financial contributions to local walking groups to help with organising group walks and to encourage people to get out walking.  See our Useful Links page for more information.
