Discover the mystery beneath the streets of Royston. What was it used for and who made its remarkable carvings? Come and see this unique site for yourself.

Royston Cave is an enigma. No records of its age or purpose exist, but it is manmade and contains an extensive range of wall carvings representing the Crucifixion, the Holy Family and several saints including St Katherine, St Laurence and St Christopher. Other carvings are less easily identified and have been interpreted as possible pagan symbols.

Some studies have drawn comparisons with Knights Templar sites. Others point to possible Masonic symbols, that could link it to James I who maintained a hunting lodge at Royston. Some believe the Cave is a spiritual centre where two ley-lines cross.

Whatever your interest, the Cave remains a mystery and a visit to make up your own mind is a must!

Royston Cave is proud to support the Heritage Watch Scheme.
