Ebbor Gorge National Nature Reserve is a largely wooded site occupying a prominent position on the southern escarpment of the Mendip Hills above the city of Wells.The scarp at this point is cut by two valleys-the
Hope Wood Valley,which has an active stream, and Ebbor Gorge, a dry
Limestone gorge.Of particular importance is the geological interest of the
site which consists of two caves and their cave deposits including the bones of a collection of Ice age mammals.The site has recently been
promoted as a candidate Special Area of Conservation along with two
other Mendip sites.
