Weatherman Walking Crickhowell walk

Weatherman Walking Crickhowell walk

This walk has just about everything – a picture-postcard town, mountain views, lots of history and even the
odd barge or two! Follow the route taken by Derek (The Weatherman) when he climbed Table Mountain, hitched a ride of a distinctly different kind and found out if walkers really are welcome in Crickhowell! And, on this walk, you might be surprised to learn that shoes are optional! Derek’s guide was barefoot walker and runner Lynne Allbutt, a landscape gardener and newspaper columnist who has run the breadth of Wales… without wearing shoes. Lynne was keen to explain the benefits of barefoot walking to Derek and even managed to persuade him to try it for himself!

Please note that this is a very challenging walk in places and walkers do need to be fit and properly equipped for mountain conditions.
