Rumors Lead Photographer To 700-Year-Old Secret On English Farm
Historically, The Knights Templar Order was founded nearly 900 years ago. Beneath a farmer’s field in Shropshire, England, a photographer came upon (likely by sheer luck) a complex known as the Caynton Caves network. The Knights Templar’s original duty was to assist spiritual seekers when they visited the Holy Land.
The Knights Templar were a momentous Catholic order that contributed their significant resources to the Crusades. The Knights Templar’s name is sourced to Temple Mount in Jerusalem. This order was mired in secrecy and routinized by ritual. The Knights Templar was active between the years 1129 and 1312. Their influence and authority leapt from their proprietorship of the Holy Land.
However, they eventually lost the Holy Land. It was only then, that the Knights Templar order disbanded its proactive, visible influence on society They did, however, retain much of their wealth.
One, day a photographer was meandering through a farm field, and came upon what looked like rabbit holes.
The Knights Templar cave in Shropshire, England has been theorized to be a cave with a somewhat dark history. With black and orange walls, it is suggested that during its history the cave was used for rituals and ceremonies in the realm of black magic.The Knights Templar cave, along with the entire Caynton Caves network, is said to be extremely popular with Pagans and Druids and is also frequently frequented during Halloween and the seasonal solstices. From the remnants shown in the picture it appears that the cave has been used by local party goers without permission.
The Knights Templar caves include vestibules and meeting rooms made from these Halloween colored stone walls. The caves also have yet-to-have-been defined information scribed upon it walls. Do these markings mean anything to you?
The markings on the cavern walls are found throughout the Caynton Caves’ network. In this area, it appears that it was used by the Knights Templar as either a stove-like structure, or perhaps an artifact representing some form of ritualistic sacrifice. Then again, perhaps this is just the place where they held water for their rituals?
This photograph is a close-up of one of the stone sacrificial vessels found in the Knights Templar cave system. Stone masonry work such as this is tedious, painstaking work that takes patience and commitment to complete. When lit, this part of the Knights Templar cave assumes a more refined sinister appearance. What is your guess as to how this part of the cave was used for?
When one considers the time in which these caves were constructed, its architectural details and concepts are quite sophisticated considering the rudimentary tools available at that time. The caves offer a true representation of just how ingenious and tenacious the Knights Templar’s ideas regarding construction.
The cave’s construction details reveal just how much the Knights Templar understood about the use of archways for construction purposes. Their archway doors were built in accordance with sophisticated construction concepts.
The following picture reveals a rounded ceiling with an amazing number of inscriptions across the curved structure. What is the point of writing across the ceiling of this area?
The interesting thing about this picture of the Knights Templar caves show black residue (on the walls) from where and how the Caynton Caves were lit. Sadly, these caves also show a profound amount of litter.
Dominic Wass, who is a celebrated artist, uses ‘Sketch’ has his professional moniker once began working at the Caynton Caves. He now works for the caretakers of the Knights Templar caves in Shropshire, England. His presence lends some perspective to the size of caves beneath a farmer’s field.
￼The vastness of the Knights Templar caves is massive. From this perspective, you can see several different hallways that shoot off this ‘hub’ in the Caynton Cave. The details of these beneath ground structures are truly remarkable. Their specific purposes remain within the imaginations of anyone looking at this marvel of construction from nearly 1000 years ago.
The angle in which this picture has been photographed shows two chambers side by side. The right chamber has less details, while the chamber on the left reveals 3 connected circles, surrounded by some kind of dots circumventing all three circles. At first, it appears to be a clock, however, with 14 dots, it appears as if the Knights Templar had their own methodology for keeping time, or its meaning is still under speculation, at present.
Less than a meter beneath a farmer’s field, lies this stone pillar which reveals the basic structure of the human face. Was it carved this way specifically or was this just a natural stone formation? Anyone brave enough to speculate?
￼The rabbit hole entrance has just enough room for the The Knights Templar member to squeeze through and enter the cave structure. Unfortunately, the entrance has been sealed due to the trespassers leaving litter and graffiti.
This picture reveals graffiti recently carved by trespassers. On the upper right of the photograph once can see the familiar notations of lustful teenagers revealing their love of another. The blatant disregard for this place of historical significance is staggering.
￼The urban artist, Dominic Wass squats near the ‘rabbit hole’ in the farmer’s field which led to the discovery of the Caynton Caves. Once again, Dominic’s presence helps reveal the correct perspective as to the size and placement of the ‘rabbit hole’ that leads to the massive Caynton Cave network.
This perspective clearly illustrates how the Knights Templar members would depart form the caves after their secret ritualistic behaviors were complete. Which world would you prefer to live in, the inner world or the outer world?
￼Watching Alice in Wonderland or one of the many iterations of Indiana Jones have provided opportunities to fantasize about being a part of a venture consisting of fascination and danger.
They also tantalize us into wanting to participate in finding a secret place that is fundamentally dissimilar to our own world. The Knights Templar caves do just that! If you are near Shropshire, England, catch the fascinating, mysterious, thought-provoking world created by the order of the Knights Templar nearly a century ago.
