141 - Cheddar Gorge & Mendip Hills West
A circular, half-day countryside walk in England starting at Cheddar, Somerset, about 6km (roughly 4 miles) long and unsuitable for families with children, prams/pushchairs, wheelchairs.
Cheddar Gorge probably the most famous area in the Mendip Hills, with its caves and cheese factories attracting lots of visitors. It's also a good place to get a taste of the great walking in the Mendips. Buses between Wells and Weston-super-Mare stop at Cheddar, and you'll be glad you took one when you see the queues for the car parks in the village.
It would be easy to make loads of cheesy gags about the village, but I won't. Head for the Tourist Information centre and go beyond this to the Toy Museum. The Gorge Walk trail starts just beyond here.
To rate the walk, simply move your mouse over the stars to the left and click when it indicates how you like the walk.
The best way to enter time and date is by entering the date first (e.g. 'tomorrow' or 'next week Wednesday') then the time you want to leave (or arrive), e.g. '8:49am'. It would look like 'next week Wednesday 8:49am'. Naturally, you can go completely old-fashioned and write something like '01 June, 8:43am' like they did it in the good ole days.
We've done our best to teach the machine about time and dates, especially the importance of tea-time on a sunny afternoon, but if he upsets you: don't worry too much. Happens to the best of us.
