About Crickhowell

Cape Town isn't the only place in the world to have a Table Mountain. Crickhowell, a gem of a tiny town, nestling at the foot of the Brecon Beacons, also has its Table Mountain. As you enter the town the bilingual sign tells you that it also goes by the Welsh name of Grug Hywel, which means Hywel's Rock, and refers to the flat topped hill of 1,486 feet, more commonly known as Table Mountain, where in the mists of time Welsh ruler, Hywel Dda, is thought to have held his fortress.

Crickhowell, which is set on the river Usk, is also known as the glittering jewel of the Vale. Walk through its quaint streets and you will find many bow fronted shops and cottages. It also has the remains of a 12th century castle, which started life as a motte and bailey/ The motte can still clearly be seen and seats by the castle afford a view of the silver thread of the Usk winding its way through the rolling and wooded valley. There are a good range of interesting shops but you won't find any supermarkets or high street chains here.

But Crickhowell is not only a pretty face. Its population of 1,800 put their town on the map with many activities. In the early 19th century the town was granted permission to hold three fairs a year. Eventually this dwindled to one fete a year but now it is back to three.

On St David's day there is a walking festival to celebrate the town's history and setting. There are tough eight hour hikes across the peaks of the Black Mountains through to strolls suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs. There is a local food festival on March 1 followed by a Twmpath (a Welsh ceilidh. In August the annual Green Man music festival is held.

Crickhowell Spinners, Weavers and Dyers, create bright modern designs as they sit and weave and chat at their weekly meeting. Just along the street Arts Alive gets creative with drawing, circus skills and other workshops for both children and adults. They are also working on 'the High Street Stitch Up, a sewn map of the town's high street on which 50 stitchers have been working. The Crickhowell Archive Centre, with it's treasure trove of donated objects and written memories, is a windfall for those seeking family roots in the area.

The most famous son of Crickhowell must be Sir George Everest, who was born there in 1790/ He went to India to do a trigonometrical survey of the mountains and became surveyor general in India. His predecessor named the highest peak in the world after him in recognition of his work.
