Ebbor is a National Trust location, north-west of Wells, and the car park is not very easy to find.
A warning: you need to be quite fit to traverse the gorge, and you would do well to wear walking boots, but there are other easier waymarked paths if you're not so fit, or don't have boots.
The gorge path goes down a steep path, but there are log steps to make it easier. At the bottom of the valley there are wicker sculptures in the woods (look out for the bear!). The path to the left goes to the gorge, which is quite steep, becoming increasingly rocky and narrow as you climb up the valley, with limestone cliffs to either side The last part is quite difficult, especially if it is raining, as it was when we went, then you come out onto the ridge. A short walk takes you to a viewing point at the top of a cliff, then its all the way down to the valley bottom again, and up the other side to get back to the car park.
About an Hour for the round trip.
When we went we met only two families, nobody else, it really felt as though we had the place to ourselves. If you are in the area, it's a lovely, peaceful place to be.
