Welcome to the Mendip Society Official Website administered by the Committee of the Mendip Society.
The A371 Wells to Weston road is to be closed for 6 months between Draycott and Rodney Stoke (October 1st until mid-March 2019) for upgrades to water and gas mains and installation of a fibre optic link.
Obviously, this will affect members going to Mendip Society events and walks. Most people will know alternative routes via the many (narrow) country lanes, but these will be busier than usual. So, allow yourself extra time for your journey.
The Mendip Hills sit high above the Somerset countryside in South West England.
The limestone uplands feature dry gorges, caves, sinks and river sources. One of the most famous areas is the Cheddar Gorge and the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is a protected landscape.
The Mendip Society works to conserve and enhance the Mendip Hills and surrounding areas for everyone to enjoy.
As a registered charity, we organise social activities on the hills for all our members including walks, special interest visits and talks. We also manage some small nature reserves and members are encouraged to be involved with these.
