Brean Down

Brean Down lies at the far end of the Mendip Hills and juts out into the Bristol Channel. It's a great place for walking and relaxing on the beach. The Down is rich in wildlife and history and includes a ruined fort to explore.

Cheddar Gorge

England's largest gorge began to form over a million years ago and through successive Ice Ages. Walk to the top to take in the amazing landscape which wouldn't look out of place in Lord of the Rings.

Crook Peak

Walkers on the Mendips

Crook Peak, Wavering Down and Shute Shelve Hill rise up from the Somerset Levels as a humpbacked series of hills.

Crook Peak is the most easily identified, because of its conical shape and proximity to the M5.
