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 has a deep lake in one of the chambers and was utilized as a show cave during the 19th century. The site also has grottos and follies, bone repository and Banwell Tower which was completed in 1840. We will have a guided tour of the site.
