The entry to Wookey Hole Cave, from the walk to the entry. The River Axe flows from here after disappearing into the ground in the Mendip Hills.
One of the many public footpaths that cross England. This one crosses the caves grounds from Wookey Hole to the next village.
Inside the caves
The underwater light in the centre of the photo is shining from the next cave, and points the way through to all the next caves that can only be reached by divers.
A sink hole to the Rive Axe and the caves below.
Many cave have been reached by boring though the rock. Mostly they can only be reached by divers.
CHEESE! Cave matured cheddar, maturing. The little wheel I bought at the shop was the best cheese I've ever had. It was like concentrated cheddar, dipped in Essence of Cheddar. Oh I wish I had more!
Cave Spider (Link for the arachnophobes to avoid)
Looking back to the exit gate from the path beside the mill leat (millstream). Some of the River Axe is diverted into the leat to power a mill
Aaron contemplates the mill leat.
"Hyena's Cave" in the cliff wall. The cave contained evidence of the first prehistoric occupation of the Mendip Hills.
The River Axe, just before in vanishes into a culvert that takes it to the other side of Wookey Hole village.
I did not take any photos of the giant wooden apes, the plastic Neanderthals, or the smilodons or fluro orange dinosaurs and green pterosaurs.
I did take photos of the vintage carnival displays inside the old mill. Next batch.
