The Mendip Society

The Mendip Hills stand high above the Somerset countryside in south west England.

The Mendip Hills, a limestone upland, abounds in karst features: dry gorges, caves, sinks and river arisings. Cheddar Gorge is the most famous feature. Part of the Hills is a protected landscape - The Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB - see listing here)

The Mendip Society is a registered charity, No. 262867. It is a group of some 500 like-minded people who come together in the interests of conserving and enhancing the Mendip Hills and the surrounding area, for everyone to enjoy. The Society runs a comprehensive programme of walks, almost every weekend, and talks.

For walks please click here for more details of their programme

You are welcome to go along - or join as a member - and there are a number of volunteer positions that need to be filled!
