Walk Photo 371701

Crug Hywel / Table Mountain above Crickhowell

Caption - Table mountain is rather grandiosely named, being just an outcrop on the south side of Pen Cerrig Calch. It was used as a hill fort during the Iron Age - it must have been the obvious choice for that purpose at the time due to its large level surface surrounded by crags on almost all sides! Crickhowell, the town below, was named after the fort. The area surrounding Table Mountain to W, S and E is enclosed farmland.
