A day out in the Cheddar Gorge

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Feli, Alex, Angel and Carl have spent the weekend hiking the Cheddar Gorge. This natural area is the home of the Cheddar man and the most popular cheese in the UK. This world famous site offers the chance to admire stunning landscapes and stalactite caverns. The guys have finished this sunny day with a delicious lunch at one of the local restaurants, where they haven’t missed the opportunity to enjoy a piece of the local cheddar cheese!

The gorge would have begun forming about one million years ago during the last Ice Age when water from melting glaciers formed a river, which over time started to carve into the limestone rock creating the steep cliffs you see today. The Cheddar Yeo River gradually made its way underground, creating the famous Cheddar Caves.
