Hell Fire Caves


Unique caves created in the 1750s by Sir Francis Dashwood where, according to tradition, members of the notorious Hellfire Club met. They consist of a long winding passage which leads past various small chambers and the Great Hall. There is a commentary and the history is depicted by life-size figures in period dress.
