Cheddar Gorge

Cheddar Gorge is a stunning series of limestone caverns. The caves were used for storing cheese, possibly as long ago as prehistoric times. Today you can tour the caves, or walk to explore the natural delights of the area home to Peregrine falcons, kestrels, and buzzards which nest in the gorge, and climb the 274 steps of Jacob’s ladder for excellent views of the gorge.
