Those limestone caves are also great for aging cheese because of the ideal humidity and constant temperature in the caves. Cheddar Cheese originated in Cheddar Gorge and is still produced there. The first purchase of Cheddar Cheese was recorded by King Henry II in 1170.
We stopped for lunch in the town of Cheddar then took the Cliff Road (aka B3135) through the Gorge. Along the way, we encountered some feral Soay Sheep.
