You can find links for many pleasant walks on the Mendip Hills website, including this one that can be started from the village:   

 

Ebbor Gorge and Model Farm: 4 mile, 2.5 hours walk

Notes: at stage two, instead of ‘almost immediately turn right to walk past the lime kilns, then bear left onto the lane’ keep straight on to go through the impressive ‘split rock’.You can then go through a gate into the field and straight ahead to pick up the walk at stage 3 ‘to go through a metal gate in a stone wall’ left of the farm.  

If you'd like to learn more about the campaign to re-open the old railway line from Clevedon to Shepton Mallet as a safe off-road route to link up the local villages and communities, then please visit: the Strawberry Line campaign website.

You can find links to many walks in the area, including a very pleasant walk around the village of Wookey Hole on the Mendip Hills ANOB Website.  This site also includes details of nature walks around the area and long distance walks, such as the Mendip Way and the Butcombe Brewery pub trail.

 

 

Cycling and walking are great ways to explore the area around Wookey Hole. You may like to know the part Sustrans plays in all this. Sustrans is the charity that’s enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make each day. Their work makes it possible for people to choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper journeys with better places and spaces to move through and live in. The National Cycle Network (NCN) is a really important part of this work with over 14000 miles of signed routes throughout the UK mostly on quiet roads or traffic free paths.

WookeyHole-caveentrance.jpgMany people regard cave diving as the most dangerous sporting activity one can choose to pursue. It is an activity which requires the most high-tech equipment in order to explore the increasingly hazardous unknowns. Extensive training, experience and preparation are essential for these divers to survive the depth or distances that are covered. Cocklebiddy Cave in Australia has the longest known underwater series of passages covered by man at 5290m however its depth barely reaches more than 30m. Nacimiento del Rio Mante in Mexico by contrast attains a staggering depth record of 267m.
