With the last of my birthday’s celebrations over (almost I still have a falconry day to look forward to!) I thought it was a good time to share some of my pictures of Cheddar Gorge. This is a spectacular place to visit. Let me show you why…
Firstly there’s Gough’s cave;
Cheddar has some brilliant stalactites (grow down from the ceiling) and stalagmites (grow up from the ground).
Of course there has to be a picture of its famous cheese stored in the caves;
It was amazing to see the pockets of life flourishing underground;
The light show in the Dream Hunters cave made the day even more memorable. I would say it was even better than Gough’s cave and it’s something we hope to take the children to see very soon.
Cheddar Gorge is a photograph’s dream. The views of Somerset are spectacular. The 3 mile (felt like 10 miles) cliff top walk is hard going but worth it.
A couple of photos from my Sony Xperia camera phone.
The rest were taken on my old Lumix camera
It is a wonderful place to visit and has given me plenty of inspiration for my book series – Silent Sea Chronicles, which features plenty of caves, caverns and mountain passes.
Next weekend I hope to share some pictures of Bath and its Roman Baths.
