April 26th 2017: Devon and Cheddar: Cheddar 2

Monty the Motorhome is back on his home drive after another day in Cheddar.

We left the campsite and drove along the main road from Cheddar to Wells. It follows the bottom of The Mendips and is shown on the map as a scenic route. We stopped at a roadside Farm Shop that was selling strawberries and got a punnet for later. Then on to Wells, but we didn’t stay - that will have to wait until another day. Our route was back into The Mendips and to the top of Cheddar Gorge for a drive down through and then back up again to park at the top.

We walked up the northerly side of the gorge (steep in places) to a viewpoint overlooking the gorge itself. The weather was lovely, plenty of sunshine, but a cool breeze. All the birds were singing like mad and everything seemed well with the world.

In what seemed no time at all it was time to drive back home and our short break is over.
