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.
