Some are convinced that it was the Caynton Caves, a place where The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon, also known as the Knights Templar, would meet secretly throughout the 17th century.

These Knights were believed to protect its pilgrims from danger as their main purpose. In the course of their existence, they were popular for being the bravest and skilled warriors and became more powerful since they were founded in 1119.

Another version of the reason why these caves were made was to serve merely as a Victorian Folly. These were the buildings constructed essentially for decoration such as ornaments to be displayed by some of the richest men to whom it first belonged in 1850.

The Caynton Caves also features a number of chambers that are considered to be a font or a freestanding stone structure that was used in baptisms during the early days.

One person who got interviewed by the BBC in January 2017 was Michael Scott, a citizen who went to see the caves in person after getting curious about it. He stated: “I traipsed over a field to find it, but if you didn’t know it was there you would just walk right past it.”

An advice people should take should they decide to see it for themselves, is that they could go through it.
