Secret 700 Year Old Cave Network Built By Knights Templar

This rabbit hole looks regular at first, but it’s actually an entrance to The Caynton Caves, a 700-year-old underground hideout. Just like the one Alice took, it leads to a magical wonderland, invisible to the average passer-by.

Located in Shropshire, England, this ancient space belonged to The Knights Templar, a feared Catholic military order that built its power and wealth by fighting in the Crusades.

Later the caves were used by druids, pagans, and secretive religious sects, looking for a safe ceremony space. However, it was shut down by landowners in 2012 after they got sick and tired of a never-ending stream of visitors. But Birmingham-based photographer Michael Scott managed to get inside and document the mythical place in pictures.

“If you didn’t know it was there you would just walk right past it,” Michael said. “It’s probably less than a metre underground, so it’s more into the field than under it.” The 33-year-old brought back some remarkable shots that truly capture the essence of these eerie caves.
