Lots of pictures here! I've always been partial to an underground space, the weirder the better! Sat in my research for many years was a place seldom seen. Armed with a vague idea I set off with Lucan on a hunt to see what we could find! Luckily it wasn't as difficult to find as expected! Most decorated underground spaces i've come across are normally very small, usually made of sandstone and very very dark! These were a nice contrast although a little bit tricky to capture with the light lime stone and the light pouring in! These are 19th century carvings of mythical creatures and emblems tucked away in such a quirky little space! I think there's the head of a a couple things, a cyclops remains of a bird, headless man some kind of boar some kind of bear/pig? many had glass around the eyes pushed into the stone!there was remains of a stone circle and lots of carved seating There was also the remains of some kind of tower a shell grotto and a cemetery! slightly puzzling thing to find in the location it was not an easy location to get the bodies too but the metal headstones just kept going into the brambles and the woods. The Cemetery
