Make the most of your walking adventures this summer with Bill’s Bimbles
During the long days of summer options for walking are seemingly endless. There is nothing quite like taking a stroll surrounded by nature in summer. The CRiC staff and volunteer team are always at hand to advise on choosing the best option from high hills, shady woodlands, riverside trails or the canal towpath. The Centre will open from 9.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Saturday during the summer months to welcome both visitors and local residents.
To add to the family of ‘Walkers are Welcome in Crickhowell’ Cracking Walks series, CRiC Trustee Bill Chase has written three leaflets on local walks to explore the area. Each walk includes route directions and a map, as well as, distances and difficulty with a description of the terrain. It is a great way to explore the Sugarloaf from Glangrwyney, Tor y Foel from Llangynidr and Llangynidr’s river and canal. They are a welcome addition to the wonderfully varied range of maps, guides and books with clear links to the area and are sure to prove as popular as the parent Cracking Walks booklets.
The Centre remains a great place from where to start a visit to Crickhowell and the Brecon Beacons and along with a warm welcome promotes the many attractions of the area. The retail area sources items and products with a uniquely Welsh flavour for that perfect small gift. The summer exhibition in the oriel cric gallery celebrates not only the season but the landscape, which inspires so much creativity. The selection of paintings, prints, sculpture, ceramics and jewellery are a joy to visit in the beautiful upstairs exhibition space.
