Cheddar Gorge & Mendips

A Whistle-stop Tour of the Mendip Hills

Eight explorers in four TR’s and Dave and Jan Hankin in their Toyota  left Hartley Wintney at 9.30 am to follow the A30 and A303 en route for Revington TR. Pausing, just before arriving, we enjoyed a very nice lunch at the nearby Bere Cider Company, locally known as Scrumpy Jack’s, recommended to us by the Revingtons and their staff who are regular patrons.

We then headed for Glastonbury to stock up on all things spiritual. Finally arriving at our hotel in Ditcheat in time for dinner. We were joined their by Neil and Sue Revington and Nick and Heather King from the Apple County TR group. Nick and Heather had been very helpful in supplyng local knowledge and assiting us in organising the trip.

Day two started with a scenic drive through some wonderful countryside, following the road round though Burrington Combe, the Ebbhor Gorge and then into Cheddar Gorge where we spent the morning. After lunch we went to Wells where we spent the afternoon sightseeing and sampling the local ice cream.

Day three took us north of the Mendip Hills to visit an area dominated by Blagdon and Chew Lakes before heading for home via the A4. For more details of the trip please CLICK to see the full report.
