Our last jaunt with Trish & Leroy was to Cheddar Gorge, where we went via Bath. It is the highest gorge/cliffs in England, and they were well worth the drive, the road winding through the gorge alone was so full of blind corners and twisting turns that it made for an attraction in itself. We did a LOT of walking, and ended the day with a drive to the coast just south of Bristol and then back to Reading.

Seeing as they haven't used the shilling system in years, I would love to know how old this sign is...

Can you see the stalagmites/stalactites?
This is part of a HUGE cavern (the bottom step of this is easily 7 feet across, if not more), called Cathedral Cavern. Amazing...
