Mendip Hills AONB
Discovering Black Down Project
This agreement applies to the Discovering Black Down Project area (Burrington Combe, Burrington Ham and Black Down) in the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The rangers are supportive of geocaching and have initially allowed 3 geocachers (Maple Leaf, Follow Me Chaps and The Evil Poles) to place caches in this area. Further cache placements may be permitted in the future. Until this is reviewed no other caches will be allowed.
A map overlay (.kml) showing the areas covered can be downloaded here.
The map overlays can be downloaded and opened in Google Earth which is a free download for a PC and also as apps for Apple and Android. (N.B. These maps do not form part of any legal representation of land ownership and are created simply as a guide to areas for the purposes of placing a geocache container or marking an area where these are not permitted).
