Cheddar is a parish in Somerset known throughout the world as the origin of Cheddar Cheese, which has been produced here since the 12th Century and to this day is still stored in the Cheddar Caves to mature.
Cheddar has a number of distinct aspects; the main village with everyday shops, supermarket, banks, post office and historic buildings including the Market Cross (pictured above); the tea rooms and gift shops of the Lower Gorge area which also includes the Cheddar Cheese factory; the Caves and Gorge tourist attraction owned and run by Longleat Estates; and the open countryside above and around the Gorge, which is part owned by the National Trust and is within the boundary of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is also a wide expanse of flat moorland to the south of the village which is ideal cycling country. Find out more by following the links in the menu above.
