Looks like a rhodedendron up top, and possibly a beech leaf bottom left. The slabs on the right look like it might be laid paving, so a well somewhere in a rhodedendron infested beech wood? It's about 27 scaff pipe diameters across, so that makes it about 1.4 m wide.  No idea where it could be though...

Not quite laid paving, but a concrete step.

The cave is a significant resurgence in West Mendip (which limits it a bit).

Not so far west as that.

In fact, my clue was slightly misleading, it is on the northern edge of Mendip in the general area to the west of central Mendip, not actually properly West Mendip. Sorry  :-[

We stopped going there after they accused us of driving though the ford (which is closed to traffic) after we backed down to it to wash kit. They refused to believe our entirely honest explanation even when we offered to show them the washed kit in the Land Rover and the fact that the tyres were dry. They remained hostile while we quickly drank our drinks and left, never to return.

The Crown in Churchill is a far better pub anyway, so no great loss to us.

Not Aggy, right country but Aggy is too far east.

Getting closer Alex, but if my geography isn't too ropey then I think you are a little too far west now.

Sorry Robin no - but probably closer than anyone else yet if my memory for Geography is any good - somewhere between your guess and Pete's...
