The Caves of the Cheddar – The Rushing Water and the Frozen Deep. A talk by Peter Glanvill

The Caves of Cheddar

by Peter Glanvill

The Rushing Water and the Frozen Deep

The Mendip Hills are well known for their caves particularly the show caves at Wookey Hole and Cheddar. But where does the water that emerges at these points come from?

In this talk I describe the cave systems that feed the river that rises at Cheddar including a cave containing the largest underground chamber in the UK and another that is the deepest system so far found on the Mendips, as well as a number of other caves noted for their impressive stalactite formations.

Start Time 7:30 pm
