8th March 2017 - That Templar Moment

Thought for the day :"Reading can seriously damage your ignorance"

Nice little article today about a discovery  in almost clear view.

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 is thought the cave was built as a place to worship

 The cave is less than a metre underground

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

 It was reportedly also once used by followers of a black magic cul

Candles are used to illuminate the inside of the cave

 The cave is near the Shropshire village of Albrighton

 There are many inscriptions on the cave walls

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

So - here it is for posterity ...
