    Cheddar – 7 Quirky Facts

    1. When Will I Be Famous?
      80’s style icons Bros grew up in Cheddar. The brothers, Matt and Luke Goss (along with bass player Craig Logan), had 8 top 10 hits and spent a total of 64 weeks in the charts. In their prime the twins covered the bedroom walls of hundreds of teenage girls, before a much publicised ‘rockumentary’ in 2018 that really put the cat among the pigeons.
    2. Cheddar Man
      The oldest skeleton ever found in the UK was discovered in Gough’s Cave, part of Cheddar Gorge. The skeleton of a man has been dated back to 7150BC, placing it in the Mesolithic Age, also known as the Middle Stone Age, a time when aurochs (large wild cattle) and megaceros (giant deer) roamed the grasslands. Other finds in the cave lead the Natural History Museum to publish findings of cannibalism and human skulls being used as drinking bowls (yikes!). Further evidence shows early human habitation in the caves stretching back 13,000 years.
    3. Wild Sheep
      Cheddar is one of the few places in the UK where you’ll find wild sheep and goats. Not domesticated, the animals are native to Britain and incredibly rare (less than 1,000 survive), they were re-introduced to the area to help numbers grow and control the grasslands and scrub.
    4. School of Kings
      Cheddar’s secondary school is the perfect place for a history lesson. In 2006 construction work at the Kings of Wessex Academy unearthed 2 Roman skeletons. Further excavations revealed the site of a Saxon royal palace that was used for the Witan, a type of early parliament, where the King gathered his thegns and leaders.
    5. Accidental Cheese
      Local legend says that Cheddar cheese was actually made by accident. The story goes that a milkmaid left a pail of cheese in the caves, it hardened and those that tried it liked the tangy taste so much that they start to produce deliberately. We have no idea when they made the first ploughmans lunch with it! You can still buy Cheddar that has been made in the caves.
    6. Middle Earth
      JRR Tolkien said the Cheddar Gorge was the inspiration behind Helm’s Deep, which in his famous Lord of the Rings trilogy was the site of a huge battle between the men of Gondor and Saruman’s army. Thankfully Gandalf the Wizard rode to rescue that day.
    7. Strawberry Line
      As well as being the birthplace of Cheddar cheese (did you now, 50% of all cheese consumed in Britain is Cheddar?), the area is home to a rare flower, the Cheddar Pink and was also a major supplier of strawberries. In fact, to ensure the strawberries reached places like London, Birmingham and Manchester in the best condition, a railway line was especially constructed and came to be known locally as the ‘The Strawberry Line’.
