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.

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.

 

 

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.
