THE eighth wonder of the world could be right on your doorstep if Cheddar Gorge succeeds in an ambitious bid to gain the title.
More than 300 sites are in the running to be named the eighth wonder in a list which already includes the Great Wall of China and Machu Picchu in Peru.
The gorge is up against the likes of Yellowstone National Park in America, the Galapagos Islands and Christmas Island, and people can vote for their favourite site online.
Maureen McAllister, head of operations and marketing for the gorge, said: “We want to mobilise everyone in Cheddar, Somerset, and hopefully England to get behind this bid, and to vote for Cheddar Gorge.”
The voting will continue until September 30, and you can vote for the gorge at www.virtualtourist.com/8thwonder
