A dry limestone gorge in the heart of the Mendip Hills and which is now a nature reserve. There are craggy limestone outcrops, scree slopes, lush wooded valleys and evidence of human inhabitation dating back to Neolithic times.
This is the view from the top of the rock pillar on the western side of the gorge, looking back to the viewpoint of the other Ebbor Gorge panorama. Also visible are the Somerset levels, which 6000 years ago was an area of swamps criss-crossed by narrow wooden footpaths supported on underwater poles.
