- Banwell Bone Caves, Banwell, North Somerset
There are two caves. The Bone Cave contains animal bones from the Pleistocene era and has a large hole in the roof thought to have been used as a pitfall trap. The Stalactite Cave is somewhat larger and has a deep lake in one of the chambers and was utilised as a show cave during the 19th Century. The site also has grottos and follies, and a bone depository. The Banwell Tower was completed in 1840.
We will have a guided tour of the site.
Details to be announced later.
