The town of Cheddar hardly qualifies as a town in the broader sense of the word due to the fact that its population is a mere five thousand people or so. As such, one couldn't be faulted for assuming that Cheddar is an inconsequential hamlet in the grand scheme of things. Such thoughts are wholly unfounded, however, and the truth of the matter is that Cheddar is in fact one of the most influential and important towns in the history of England and the United Kingdom as a whole.

The reason that Cheddar has so few people is actually partly the reason that Cheddar has been such an indispensable part of the country. Cheddar is and always has been a town where food is grown and cultivated. If it were a bustling burg the town would hardly be able to sustain its immense supply of fantastic foodstuffs. Cheddar is known around the world for the incredible strawberries that it produces and anybody living in and around the area is truly lucky to be able to taste what are often referred to as the best strawberries in the world. They are juicy, plump, and have the perfect balance of tart and sweetness. The strawberry crop in Cheddar, while beloved and very important, is not the greatest legacy of the town, however. If you haven't guessed what makes Cheddar so indispensable to the world yet, just take a look at the name for one of the most obvious hints possible. That's right: Cheddar is the home of the original cheddar cheese that has entered the public consciousness around the Earth in a major way.

Cheddar is more than just a great town for food, however. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Somerset and, while much of this is due to the fantastic morsels of grub, an even bigger part of the town's tourist trade is the very old rock formations that can be found in Cheddar. Cheddar is home to some of the oldest bits of history in England and many artifacts and relics have been found in that town that are more than thirteen thousand years old! It was in this historic village that the oldest human skeleton ever found in Britain was uncovered in 1903. It is surmised that this paleolithic corpse is more than nine thousand years old. Not surprisingly, the skeleton earned the nickname Cheddar Man and it is most fortunate that companies like Kraft and Velveeta have yet to use the skeleton as a loveable mascot for kids. Cheddar Gorge is also found in Cheddar and this is in fact the largest gorge in the entire United Kingdom. Not surprisingly, it is an incredibly popular destination for holiday travelers all year round. Cheddar is the kind of town that truly has something to enthrall everybody whether you consider yourself a gourmand, a historian, or a spelunker. It is times like this that we should be thankful that Cheddar is a charming village and not a crowded, overbearing metropolis.
