The only way is up - Cheddar Gorge

It's not all doom and gloom at Soggibottom, she kept her feet dry yesterday.

Last Monday we were in Somerset.

Yes, the same place where real Cheddar cheese comes from.

Even the river that runs through Cheddar had it's fair share of water last week.

If you have never been through Cheddar Gorge it can be quite an experience, the road winds it's way up the steep gorge.
Most people climb the rocks or go under ground to see the famous caves.
We like to drive through when there is hardly anyone around, best time to do that is when the day is so cold no one else is daft enough to be out and about out of season.

If you want to take a trip up through the gorge, you can. 
Be warned the video is four minutes long, but it does take you from the very bottom right to the very top, with music. No editing. Forgive the dirty window and the shake of the camera.

Thanks for all the good wishes and thoughts for yesterday guys, we really appreciate all your good thoughts. The water is back to a reasonable, level. Have a great weekend. x x x

You keep them paws dry. Wow Over here a narrow road like that would be a crash fest!

Wow, I can't believe all the flooding you've been dealing with! You must be exhausted from it all. My husband and I are HUGE lovers of cheese...not so good for the waist line but worth every bite:)

Looks like you had a nice time at the Gorge. I've never been, so off to watch the video now.

So glad to know that your feet are dry. Let's hope the weather holds now and all the waters go back.
Your cheddar gorge video made me relive all the times I have driven through there. I have lost count but love the place so much. Never miss bringing visitors to the place as it one of the best of Britain sites which is easily accessible, not too far from where we are.
