Swansea Ramblers Walk
Coach trip to Crickhowell
- To walk up Table Mountain
29th August 2015
Leader: Zetta Flew
We hired a coach to take us to the picturesque town of Crickhowell where 39 of us ascended to the top of Table Mountain for some fantastic views. The weather was lovely and everyone had an enjoyable day out. Many in our party had not walked up a mountain before so the gentle 5 mile stroll introduced them to an accessible mountain.
Swansea Ramblers offer a range of walks for most abilities.
Try an easy walk of 2-3 hours or our longer strenuous mountain walks for the experienced walker.
Maybe you'd like to explore walking for the first time with a friendly group of people?
- Come with Swansea Ramblers!
If you'd like to try a Swansea walk then do come along and find out what the great outdoors is all about.
It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.
You'll be very welcome to join us for three free walks.

Walking through Crickhowell
Beginning the ascent
Thirty nine walkers out today
Walking above Crickhowell
Table Mountain is about 2.5 miles uphill
Tea break in the woods
Off we go again
Nearly done all the climbing
And enjoying the day!
There's Table Mountain!
Not far now
Panoramic views over the valley
Now what have they spotted behind us?
Pen y fan & Corn du - but that'll be another day!
Table Mountain ahead of us
And a lunch stop before the final ascent
Zetta tells us about Mount Everest - Yes there is a link!
And up we go!
Sugar Loaf over there -
Hmm! Maybe another day!
Yes! There's always one isn't there!
Oh! There's two messing about today
Start to descend
Downhill all the way
(Unlike the walk!)
See! - Told you!
Some old stiles to cross
Slows us down
Through a farm
There's the main church in the centre
From where you can see Table Mountain
Did we really go all the way up there?
Time to look around the town
And explore the back streets
