Stunning 700-year-old giant cave used by Knights Templar found behind a rabbit hole in the British countryside – Mirror Online

The cave, beneath a farmer’s field in Shropshire, was used by the medieval religious order that fought in the Crusades and these stunning images were captured by photographer Michael Scott

It contains a network of walkways that are “completely untouched”

The way out of the cave, where Knights Templar would have walked 700 years ago

The hole leading into the cave looks just like a rabbit’s hole.

The cave is near the Shropshire village of Albrighton.

The Knights Templar were active from 1119 to the beginning of the 1300s, although the exact dates are disputed.

It is not known exactly when the cave was dug, but it is thought around 700 years ago – although some believe it was much later in the 17th century
