Grotto at SJ 7756 0290

Cave/grotto. Probably late C18 or early C19, but undatable. Hollowed out of rock in side of disused quarry, approached by very small unmarked entrance. Plan, apparently irregular ambulatories opening into inner sanctuaries. Columns left by excavation as cylinders with bases and capitals (and occasional anuulets); neo-Norman decoration to bays between columns, one neo-Norman doorway with beak-heads and roll moulding; decorative quatrefoils and designs abound.
