Situated in the Mendip Hills, Cheddar is home to the stunning natural wonder that is the Cheddar Gorge, a limestone ravine some 137 m (449 ft) deep. A site of significant geological interest and breathtaking beauty, the Gorge also offers fantastic climbing potential for the more adventurous.
The village of Cheddar itself is world famous for its cheese, produced in the caves from the 12th century to the present day. Those interested in the making of this dairy delight should head to the Cheddar Cheese factory.
