A wonderful outdoor play area
Ebbor Gorge is a limestone gorge in Somerset, England, designated and notified in 1952 as a 63.5-hectare biological Site of Special Scientific Interest in the Mendip Hills.
The area has mixed woodland, rocks, caves, and grassland. There are small streams good for paddling and fallen trees to clamber over. An information board provides good guidance on what to look for and 3 varied nature trails are well marked, one suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. There are steep drops in places but most are marked. It can be muddy at times so waterproof footwear is advisable. Spotting wildlife, exploring the woodland, playing in streams and climbing up the rocky path to the Gorge would all be interesting activities. The car park is free but please note it is locked at dusk. There are no facilities but nearby Wookey Hole has a pub and a cafe.
