An extraordinary discovery was made when a 700-year-old Knights Templar cave was found beneath a farmer’s field in Shropshire, England, in a complex known as the Caynton Caves network. The Knights Templar were an important Catholic order who featured prominently during the Crusades, and their name comes from Temple Mount in Jerusalem. This is where the Knights Templar are said to have first been created in 1129 by the Pope’s order, and their original duty was to help spiritual pilgrims who were visiting Jerusalem and the Holy Land.
The photographer Michael Scott, from Birmingham, saw a video of the 700-year-old Knights Templar cave in Shropshire and decided to visit the Caynton Caves network to witness them for himself. Some of Scott’s photographs of the cave have been published, including those in The Mirror, and these show an exotic candlelit labyrinth which Fox News note looks extremely similar to scenes straight out of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
