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 28 February 2018 is 91 members.

|Brechfa West Windfarm Project|
of a 28 turbine wind farm in Brechfa Forest began
in October 2016. The wind farm will generate
enough renewable electricity to meet the calculative needs of
approximately 38,800 average UK households annually. A
total of 28 wind turbines with an overall capacity of 57.4 megawatts
are now installed and the construction is almost complete.
On the afternoon of the 23rd August, the project team are inviting members of the local community to visit the site and see the wind farm up close. A Community Open Day, commencing at 2pm will be suitable for all ages and free to attend but registration is required.
