This cache is located on the north side of Cheddar Cliffs in an area that has fantastic views of the gorge.
A perfect spot to rest after the effort needed to walk up here and it gives you a true feeling of the gorge away from the 'tourist area' below.
Please take care at the cache site as the cliff edge is unfenced and there is a steep slope
Cheddar Gorge is the largest gorge in the UK and is on the southern edge of the Mendip Hills. The highest part of the gorge is 113m (371ft) with a near-vertical cliff-face to the south and steep grassy slopes to the north.
In 2005 the gorge was named as the second greatest natural wonder in Britain.
You may wish to visit this cache as part of the National Trust & Cheddar Caves signposted gorge walk (approx 3 miles for the full circular walk).
Suggested starting points are:
i) Cufic Lane opposite the National Trust Shop: walk up the lane a short way and then take the permissive path on the right hand side.
ii) Black Rock Gate - follow the Cheddar sign on the left hand side at the second gate as you walk along the drove.
Thank you to the National Trust for granting permission to place this cache on their land.
As we don't want people to walk all the way up here and not be able to find the cache (due to GPS/tree cover) the hint is very specific.
