The village of Cheddar is located on the southern edge of the Mendip Hills 9 miles north-west of Wells. It has a population of approximately 5000.

Cheddar has played a prominent role in ancient history having been a notable Roman and Saxon settlement. The Kings Wessex Academy occupies the historical site of an Anglo Saxon Palace. With stunning countryside surrounding the area, the phenomenon of the United Kingdom’s largest natural gorge and its world renowned cheese, Cheddar is a truly unique place.

There are 2 primary schools within the village: Cheddar First School and Cheddar Grove Primary School. Fairlands Middle School and The Kings Wessex Academy provide secondary education.

There are a variety of good local shopping facilities and a doctor’s surgery within the village. In addition there are numerous sports and leisure clubs and facilities including the sailing club on the reservoir.

Cheddar is well served by the A371 providing a link to the A38, which connects Bristol to the M5. This well connected road network provides access to Bristol, Bath and Weston-super-Mare. The village also benefits from a regular bus service.

The site is located on the western edge of Cheddar in close proximity to the reservoir. It is fairly regular in shape, grassed and is currently used for grazing livestock and extends to approximately 2.3 hectares (5.7 acres). The topography of the site is level. To the east and west are open fields, to the south is Hellier’s Lane from which the site is accessed.
