Video: Cave song – Gower in Wookey, day:6

Day 6: video of song in cave.

Recorded in secret caves near Wookey, where the paper mill had produced vellum – cotton paper – for 400 years. During the US civil war Wookey Hole paper was used for banknotes. It closed 5 years ago, alas. Each vent had a ladies’ name.

Now Wookey Hole has a very different central industry – entertainment.

Somerset’s best bowling green – “a lawn like glass” – was last year dug up for pirate themed crazy golf. Council are prosecuting, but lazily. Pirates are pretty popular.
