Royston Cave is an enigma. No records of its age or purpose exist.
Some theories suggest it was used by the Knights Templars, others by King James I and the Freemasons. Discovered by accident in 1742, Royston Cave has continued to baffle visitors for centuries. Man-made and beehive shaped; the cave is cut 30ft into the chalk that underlies Royston’s ancient crossroad, Ermine Street and Icknield Way.
The cave contains an extensive range of medieval wall carvings representing the Crucifixion, the Holy Family and several saints including St Katherine, St Laurence and St Christopher.
Only open on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays from the first weekend in April through until last weekend in September.
Entry by guided tour only.
See website for details.
