Abstract: Cheddar Gorge is the classic example of a waterless limestone gorge with a tributary system of waterless limestone valleys. It is also one of Britain's greatest natural scenic attractions. Opening into it are several caves at different levels, whose origins are linked to the development of the gorge. The largest known cave is Gough's Cave, visited by a half a million tourists each year.
