Cheddar Reservoir.
A beacon beyond Nyland Hill and Cheddar Reservoir.
The Limestone Quarry on Callow Hill - it was huge!
It must have been about 100m deep at least!
Another shot of the Quarry.
Now walking along The Perch on Shipham Hill and the view opens up ot the reservoir. Just before taking this shot there was a huge Buzzard sitting in the tree and it flew off before I could get the camera ready.
