What is Royston Cave?

Royston Cave is a Grade I listed, scheduled monument in North Hertfordshire, England. It is man-made and cut approx. 9 m into the chalk which lies beneath Royston's ancient crossroad, Ermine Street and Ickneild Way. The cave is covered in low-relief wall carvings which are Christian in depiction and medieval in style.

Discovered by accident in 1742, the cave's origin and use remain an enigma. No one know who built it or why. Some people link it to the Knights Templar, others to the Freemasons. Some suggest it was a hermitage and some believe it to be situated on two important Ley lines.
