Aerial photo of Cheddar Gorge clearly showing the sheer cliff faces to the south and the slope to the north.

The gorge is located on the southern edge of the Mendip hills and was formed by meltwater floods during the cold periglacial periods during the last million or so years. The gorge reaches a maximum depth of 137 m (449 ft) and is well known for its caves
