Abstract: The manuscript collection of the 18th century antiquary John Strachey, now in the Somerset Record Office, is a source largely untapped in local studies. This paper prints and comments upon some extractcs on caves and archaeological sites on Mendip. These include Wookey Hole, Goatchurch, caves at Cheddar, the camps at Dolebury and Burrington and an earthwork near Priddy.
