Find the best Morriston walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the Maytree Autistic Unit area.

Find A Walk Near Me by using Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

GO Outdoors Swansea

Former Focus, Swansea Enterprise Park, Bran Cl, Llansamlet, Swansea SA7 9DE, UK – 0344 387 6840

One of my favourite outdoor stores witj a good selection of items as well as a price match. It is worth paying for the discount card as you get your money back almost instantly depending on what you buy. Watch out for the WOW deals and don't forget the price promise which not only matches the price but knocks a further 10% off as i have used this many a time and saved a lot over the years. Staff are always helpful but not always great with math (only two to be honest in several years of visiting) so if you do use the price promise check the final price. Highly recommended.

staff are normally helpful, have had one that wasn't. but generally good service and helpful staff , great choice of camping gear , I do buy a fair bit of camping gear here. Car park is nice size for customers.

Giant Store Swansea

Castell Cl, Llansamlet, Swansea SA7 9FH, UK – 01792 762345

Good name, because it is very large. Bikes, accessories and clothes. Also workshop. Added bonus here is coffee shop, with pleasant staff.

Hi I have been a customer with Giant for more than 2 years basically since the Franchise opened here in Swansea. Product range is one of the best for both Male and Female Cyclists. The Accessories are well appointed and meet the requirements of modern day Cycling. The Sales staff are top notch, Jo in particular. Service is second to none i must be honest. I have fantastic advice from Mark and Tom and had complete rebuilds to my Specification. The Cafe is excellent food and service as well. It to me is a Cycling destination these days. I better not forget Magic Mike, well done everyone. See you in 2018.

The Range, Swansea

Trallwn Rd, Llansamlet, Swansea SA7 9WL, UK – 01792 793399

Great store with large selection. Poor customer care though. Rung ahead to check.it they had stock before traveling there, was told someone would call me back. Been bought item and another 12hrs has passed and no callback guess it's not happening.

Love this place. Bit out of the way in a strange location however it's got plenty of parking outside and inside it's massive. They have some beautiful items for the home. Well worth a visit

Another good walking guide. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

Snake bites

Most snake bites in the UK are not serious. But it's important to get all snake bites checked as soon as possible.

Call 999 or go to A&E immediately if:

  • you think you, or someone else, has been bitten by a snake

Find your nearest A&E


If you're not in the UK when you are bitten by a snake, contact the emergency medical services in the country you're in.

What to do while you're waiting for help


  • stay calm, most snake bites in the UK are not serious and can be treated

  • keep the part of your body that was bitten as still as you can

  • lie in the recovery position if you can

  • take paracetamol for any pain

  • try to remember the colour and pattern of the snake to tell the doctor

  • take off any jewellery and loosen clothes near the bite, in case it swells


  • do not go near the snake, or try to catch or kill it

  • do not try to suck or cut the poison (venom) out of the bite

  • do not tie anything tightly round the part of the body where the bite is

  • do not take aspirin or ibuprofen, as they can make bleeding worse

What happens at the hospital

You will usually need to stay in hospital for at least 24 hours if you have been bitten by a snake.

The bite will be cleaned and bandaged. You may be given an injection to help protect you from tetanus.

If you were bitten by a poisonous (venomous) snake you will be treated with a medicine to fight the venom. This is given through a thin tube into a vein, called a drip.

Types of UK snake

Only 3 types of snake are found in the wild in the UK.

The adder is the only venomous snake, but you should get all snake bites checked as soon as possible.

Telling the doctors the colour and pattern of the snake that bit you could help them treat it.
