  • 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.
