Abstract: Three seasons of fieldwork at Middle Down Drove, Cheddar in the Mendip Hills, Somerset (centred on ST485 526) are reported on. The work involved the investigation of a previously known flint scatter, further fieldwalking and the partial excavation of a round barrow. Geophysical surveys were also undertaken, revealing a possible prehistoric field system that incorporated the round barrow. Although fairly limited in scope, the project uncovered new information about prehistoric activity dating from the Mesolithic to the Bronze Age in this area.
