Table Mountain

Crickenhowell lies four miles southeast of Tretower on the northern bank of the wide and shallow River Usk. The main feature is a grand 17th century bridge, with thirteen arches visible from the eastern end and only twelve from the west. Apart from this there are some charming teashops and inns where you can enjoy award-winning food and sample real cider.
This compact town is a great base from which to explore the surrounding area, and is named after the mountain north of the town, ‘Crug Hywel,’ also known as Table Mountain. At 1481 ft it provides a spectacular northern backdrop, topped by the remains of the 2500 year old hill fort (crug) of Hywel, accessed on a path past the Wern, off Llanbedr Road.
Many walkers also follow a route north from Table Mountain, climbing two miles up to the plateau topped limestone hump of Pen Cerrig-calch.
