History


Description

This small cave is said to be one possible place, where King Arthur and his knights rest, until Britain needs them again.

The cave has three entrances, two big enough to walk in and one very low one. The cave is rather small and looks very much artificially enlarged. To be honest, there is nothing which remembers King Arthur, and so the whole hassle is a matter of the visitors fantasy.

Tony Oldham and Keith Jones wrote a detailed description of this cave and added an enormous amount of references. Please follow the link below. We thank the authors for the permission to reprint it.
