Welcome to the Mendip Society Official Website administered by the Committee of the Mendip Society.

our news


  The Committee invites all members, your families and any friends to join in a relaxed get together -so they can see we really are a friendly bunch (– fingers crossed for the same glorious weather as last year!).

As before we are planning an ‘American Supper’ whereby you bring some food and/or drink of your choice and add it to the table. Plates, cutlery and cups are available and we will be making hot drinks if wanted.

Also invited The Barley Rye Choir so expect some great singing. PLUS – there will be an ‘Open Mike jam session.

We would like everyone to bring along something to make music (or a noise) with – a set of sticks or spoons, homemade shakers, bangers & clappers, combs and kazoos, bells and whistles. A trad instrument would be great too if you have one. Please join in.

There is no charge for this evening but there will be a collection for Barley Rye’s 2018 local charity.

There is no need to book, just come along.  Expect a raffle.

our hills

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.

our society


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.
