    Greebo and I in the Caves

    Fondest memory: I was taken to Cheddar by two wonderful VT members with whom I was visiting in Bristol for the weekend, Greebo and Aragina.
    Greebo agreed to accompany me into the caves and while we were in them a group of miners, returning from the depths of the them, walked past us in a line singing "Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go", the song the Seven Dwarfs sing as the head off to the mines in Snow White. It was absolutely hilarious!!

    Reach for the Skies, Jacobs Ladder

    Favorite thing: Jacobs Ladder is a series of step cut in to a vertical rock face, there are about 300 steps to the top of the Cliff overlooking Cheddar Gorge. A word of caution however, a few people have been killed climbing these steps as they are very steep and the climb is not an easy one, wear good trainers and if you are not fit do not attempt the climb. I have done the climb about 3 times but I am not fit enough anymore to do it. The beginning of the Ladder is extremely easy but don't be lulled into a false sense of security, most people start off that way thinking "this is easy what's the problem" and then get to the cliff and think "oh S*%t". The views from the cliff top however are rather spectular and the walk along the cliff tops will take you past many varied species of flora and fauna most of which are protected species such as Peregrine Falcons and the Horseshoe Bat. There is also a lookout platform where you can see views of Glastonbury, Somerset Levels, Mendip Hills and even Exmoor.

    Favorite thing: This is basically a very steep hill walk with wooden steps to help people up. The views at the top are well worth the climb. The picture is from about halfway up.
