A spectacular underground cave has been found and was said to be used by the medieval religious order, the Knights Templar, though their missing treasure wasn’t there.
The discovery was made when a photographer named Michael Scott who set out to find them after being inspired by an online video. He set out to find a rabbit hole which ultimately lead him to the spectacular Knights Templar cave system.
During the middle ages, many of the Knights Templar fled to England and it is said they built such a cave system for religious worship and sanctuary, unlike the Hellfire caverns that were used for satanic and devil worship that sit about 160 southwest of the Knights Templar cave.
The cave system sits less than a meter under the ground’s surface and have hiding in plain sight for many years. According to legend, the cave system was used by followers of the Knights Templar in the 17th century. Though their original purpose is still a bit of a mystery.
Historic England actually claim that the caves are not that old and suggest they were built in the 1700s or 1800s, sometime after the religious order was dissolved.
Reports claim that the suspected Knights Templar cave system was actually a place for dark magic, though there is no physical evidence that supports this theory, unlike the Hellfire caves or even Bobby Mackey’s torture house.
Whatever they were used for and whatever their purpose was, the discovery is breath-taking and those who have been lucky enough to visit are in awe at its historic beauty.
The caves were reportedly sealed in 2012 to prevent any vandalism and even to deter practitioners of dark magic rituals.
