This fascinating selection of photographs traces some of the many ways in which Cheddar has changed and developed over the last century. Now that the railway has gone and most visitors disembark from the car and coach bays above the world-famous caves, this book explores Cheddar past and present from the top of its dramatic gorge to the substantial reservoir beyond the bustling village below.
While its caves have long served as the village s main attraction, there is a great deal more to discover here regarding a singular tale of mills and trains, churches and schools, strawberries and cheese. Packed with archive and contemporary photographs, many previously unpublished, Cheddar Through Time serves as both a practical guidebook for the visitor exploring this fascinating place for the first time, and a useful resource for those interested in finding out more about its rich history.
