Black Rock and Long Wood
Habitat: Broadleaved woodland, limestone grassland and outcrops, hawthorn scrub
Car park/access point ST482546, BS27 3QE
From the A371 in Cheddar, take the B3135 up through Cheddar Gorge until the road starts to flatten out near the top after a long right-hand bend. Look for a gate and track on the left: roadside parking either side of the gate and opposite – enough for about 10 cars.
The track past Black Rock is wide, flat and only mildly uneven, so is possibly suitable for those with mobility issues (including wheelchair users), but the paths in Long Wood and to Velvet Bottom are not.
No facilities on site, but cafes, shops, tourist attractions and toilets in Cheddar village.
