Photo of the location of the cable cars and top station buildings proposed developments:
view of Cheddar Gorge from Birch Hill, Cheddar 10th June 2012

The location of the proposed cable cars etc developments is the bare ground where trees were felled last Autumn.  Zoom in to see the felled trees are still lying there.  We don't know how much extra ground clearance would be required for the "Sky Walk" or other cafe/classroom/top-station developments.
