The Mendip Hills

I came across a website this morning that stated the following:-

Everything you need to know about Mendip Hills is right here. If you are visiting Mendip Hills for holidays or even for just a few hours this site will help you find accommodation in Mendip Hills , activities, restaurants, shopping and more about the Mendip Hills Surrounding Area.

There are sections called 'Mendip Hills Pictures', 'Mendip Hills Accommodation' etc. Sadly the information is in the main useless and inaccurate. I would hate to think that any overseas visitor found the site, and then planned a visit using the information it provides. It might even confuse some residents of Mendip!

So in the spirit of sharing there is an excellent website, that provides some of the best information for visitors and local residents alike, about places to eat, visit and stay.

Of course if you want to explore the Mendip Hills in photos then my own website has a wide selection of images, or you could go straight to Mendip Hills Photos.

The stone building is a post-medieval barn at Deer Leap, that has been restored.  There are fine views across the Somerset Levels from this area and a large car park.  Deer Leap car park and Picnic Area  - grid reference ST 518493 on the OS Explorer 141 map.
