Woah: A Random Rabbit Hole in a Farmer’s Field Leads to a ‘Knight’s Templar Cave’

Depending on who you ask, legend says that the Caynton Caves discovered at Caynton Hall, near Beckbury, Shropshire, England were used during the 17th century by the Knights Templar.

The grotto-like caves were discovered less than a meter down what looked like otherwise random rabbit holes in a farmer’s field.



A main entrance to the caves

Historic England claims the caves themselves were more likely built much later, in the late 18th or early 19th century, well after the Knights Templar supposedly was officially dismantled. They also claim the caves are for “black magic rites”.


But others insist that’s just a cover story for the caves’ real purpose — the Templar order which never really disbanded and their secret meetings.


Although the caves have been declared as structurally sound as when they were built, the entire complex which sits on private property was sealed up in 2012 to keep away vandals and stop people from practicing rituals there.

This year it was reopened to allow some of the photographs taken above.


But sealing the caves off also keeps people from asking too many questions… and they’re purpose remains disputed to this day.
