172.Cheddar up over with reservoir (9 miles)


Parking Cheddar BS27 3NN

So first week back and Cheddar Gorge it was but weather not very good with spits and spots of rain most of the day although rain proper didnt start till end.

After the slog up the east face through the trees you come to some brilliant views, but today a bit misty, out across towards the Somerset Levels.

A Common inkcap Mushroom

Cheddar Reservoir and the final destination ahead.

One of the many Goats on the Gorge cliffs.

Don't do it !

The grey light didn't help my photography but still stunning.

Leaving the Gorge behind i crossed the road and entered Black Rock area.

Spotted this VW Transporter not looking its best, sad, as i have one, wouldn't want Bilko to end up like this !

A few Mushrooms about these are ..... not sure any guess's ?

Sat here for a sandwhich weather started to get a bit worse !

Soon off hill and alongside Cheddar Reservoir no rare birds just dog walkers :(

In to Cheddar Village and the Cheddar Market Cross built in the 1890s and still looks good.
That was the walk this week not a high scoring one or great one to start back but some great views, next week promises to be a classic once i've done it !

That's all for this week, join me again next week  :)
