Walking Close to Cheddar Gorge

Walking Close to Cheddar Gorge

by: Clive Brown
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are clear and precise and the pencil drawn sketch maps are particularly attractive as well as practical.

This guide focuses on the area around Cheddar Gorge with ten walks. The magnificent scenery of Cheddar Gorge has been attracting visitors for hundreds of years. The gorge was formed from the end of the last Ice Age, around 15 or 20 thousand years ago. As the glaciers melted large amounts of water poured off the high ground and eroded a fault line in the limestone into the spectacular winding gorge. Water now goes underground to the River Yeo in Cheddar village.

Wedmore and Landcourse Rhyne - 4.5 miles
Chapel Allerton, Weare and Stone Allerton - 5.5 miles
