The future of Cheddar Gorge will be revealed at a parish council meeting tonight (Tuesday).

The head of operations from Longleat Enterprises, David Gillingham, will talk to Cheddar Parish Council and the public about what is next for the gorge and answer questions about the company’s work in the area.

The historic Cox’s Mill Hotel, in The Cliffs, is expected to be at the centre of the conversation, as it has now been closed for several years.

A council spokesman said: “Residents will have an opportunity to question Longleat about issues which have been of concern for some time, including the long-term future of Cox’s Mill.”

Mr Gillingham will also discuss the company’s plans for the new visitor attractions and other improvements to Cheddar Gorge at the monthly meeting of Cheddar Parish Council on Tuesday at 7pm.

The meeting will be held in the village hall, in Church Street, and will give members of the public the opportunity to ask questions about the gorge.
