The National Trust is bringing back its Top Of The Gorge Festival this month for its second year on a spectacular site overlooking Cheddar Gorge.

The festival is a carnival of adventure, entertainment, inspiration and a variety of deliciously local food and drink.

The pop-up campsite will look right through the jaws of the famous gorge towards the Somerset coast.

But while people come to bask in the natural beauty, they stay for the range of activities which will be on offer over the weekend.

From trail running to mountain biking, climbing to caving, walking to archery, there is something for all ages over the three-day festival.

In the evening, it is time to slip into the sleeping bags, gather around the campfire, sing songs, hear stories and star gaze.
