Wookey Hole

Theme Parks
Wookey Hole is a village close to Wells in Somerset, England. It is within the parish of St Cuthbert Out.One possible origin for the name Wookey is from the Old English wocig (an animal trap)., although it is also a possible alteration from a Celtic word ogo (cave) referring to Wookey Hole Caves.The village of Wookey Hole is dominated by the Wookey Hole Caves tourist site which has show caves and a controversial crazy golf course which was built on the site of the village bowling green.The village has shops, a pub, restaurants, hotels and a campsite.The former paper mill building, whose water wheel is powered by a small canal from the river, dates from around 1860 and is a Grade II-listed building. The production of handmade paper ceased in February 2008 after the owner Gerry Cottle concluded there was no longer a market for the product, and therefore sold most of the historic machinery.Glencot House is a Grade II listed country house dating from 1887, by Ernest George and Harold Peto, for W. S. Hodgkinson. A report of the building appeared in The Building News, 13 May 1887; the architect's drawing was exhibited at the Royal Academy, and is now at RIBA.
