Yesterday???s walk was a choice of a 6 or 10 mile route from the caravan site to the area around Cheddar Gorge.?? Naturally we opted for the longer route but it proved to be something of a physical challenge.?? Although the total ascent was only about 1,600 feet, it felt like more by the time that we had finished.?? The climb up the path by the side of the Gorge was steep in places but not too bad and we saw some of the native goats. From here we went to the highest point on the Mendips (Beacon Batch ??? 1,150ft).?? After this it was largely downhill adding pressure to an ever increasing blister!
