Royston Cave - A Medieval Enigma

In 1742 a workman in the small Hertfordshire town of Royston, in southern England, discovered a large millstone, covering a shaft leading down into a mysterious cave. The townsfolk gathered and sent a small boy down to see what lay below. His answer astounded them.

The cave is located beneath the crossroads formed by two of Britain's most important Roman Roads, Ermine Street and the Icknield Way.

To this day, the exact provenance of the carvings in the Royston Cave is uncertain, but the evidence points to a Templar connection.

Fortunately, you can not only watch this video to find out more; if you're visiting the area the Royston Cave is open to the public on Saturday afternoons. Check out their website if you're going though!
