Cheddar is not just cheese.

It’s not until you’ve actually been through Cheddar Gorge, looked up at those great rocks and felt totally puny and insignificant, that you realise just how fantastic it is.

The village is of course a tourist attraction, and so prices reflect this as any cheese you purchase there probably has a ‘1’ in front of the price you’d pay in the supermarket.
But look closely at this:

The rock face was practically a sheer drop, but goats are common place munching their way along invisible ledges at these dizzying heights.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    These goats really are amazing – so sure-footed! Like you say, rather them than me! Lovely photos 🙂

    My name, while living in Paris, was Mme. Cheddar. Nothing to do with the goats just the cheese.

  3. The goats are so cool! I never can find them when they are supposedly on rocks near me, so I am highly impressed by your shots!
