You will find this mermaid at Wookey Hole near Wells, in the southwest of England. Wookey Hole is an actual hole in the ground – sort of in the shape you would expect if a meteor or large space ship crashed into the ground at a shallow angle. It is about 1000′ long and 200′ wide, and about 200′ deep at the deep end, and has an extensive system of limestone caves and caverns.
As a tourist attraction, Wookey hole has it all – the caves, the Witch of Wookey Hole, King Kong, life-size dinosaurs, hippos and lions, and much more – including this spectacularly gorgeous mermaid at Wookey Hole, in the company of a fairy. The sculptor created the mermaid in aluminum, with an extremely long tail, and spectacular detail, which you can see on this page dedicated to the Wookey Hole Mermaid.
Humans have been visiting and using Wookey Hole for at least 45,000 years, and the Romans knew about it during the Roman occupancy some 2000 years ago. It has more than 13,000′ of caves and at least 25 cave chambers found so far, and is the birthplace of cave diving in England.
