Pen Cerrig-Calch (left) and Table Mountain (right) from Crickhowell
This 6-mile walk climbs northwards from the centre of Crickhowell (near Abergavenny) to the flat-topped summit of Table Mountain, crowned with an Iron Age fort. A further climb leads to the limestone dome of Pen Cerrig-Calch, the highest point of the walk (710m). The return route retraces steps to Table Mountain before following a different path down a lovely wooded valley back into Crickhowell.
The walk will probably take us about 4+ hours at a gentle pace, with a break for picnic lunch at the halfway stage. The first half of the walk is a steady mainly gentle ascent (apart from the final ascent of Table Mountain), the return is a steady descent.
Family, friends, children and dogs are welcome on the walk, part of which will be in silence.
Meet at St Andrews Park at 10am (entrance near toilets at top of Melita Rd) or at the Crickhowell Sports Centre/Crickhowell High School car park (click for Google map) at 11.15am. Bring a picnic lunch to eat during the walk (probably on Table Mountain). We can go for optional tea or a drink at The Bridge End Inn next to the River Usk, after the walk.
Let Gordon know by the morning of the day before the walk if you’d like to join the walk, where you would like to meet, and whether you would like or can offer a lift from Bristol.
