A possibly ordinary rabbit hole in the field of a farmer gives rise to an underground sanctuary meant to have been utilised by the devotees of a medieval religious order; however, is everything as simple as it appears?
In accordance with the Caynton Caves, the local legend, near Shifnal in Shropshire, were utilised by the followers of the Knights Templar in the 17th Century.
As per all the footage and new photos, the noteworthy Caynton Caves network is shown, which appears like something out of the movie – ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’. Well, the shadowy Knights Templar order is also meant to have utilised the caves.
In accordance with a report, these caves are completely hidden under the field of a farmer in Shropshire. In the same report, it is also said that these caves seem to be utilised for the black magic activities by the modern-day visitors. A photographer named Michael Scott came from Birmingham and went for photographing the caves after watching a video of them online. This photographer said that he walked over a field to discover it, but if anybody did not know it was actually there he/she would simply traipse right past it. Considering how long it had been in a great condition, it appeared like an underground temple.
Michael added that he had to crouch down and once he was in it was totally silent.He even found a few spiders there as well. It was raining heavily and so the slope down was really muddy; however, inside the cave was completely dry.

After entering the cave, Michael experienced walkways, arches, and carved niches. He portrayed the caves as cramped, observing that anybody nearing 6ft tall needs to bend down inside this complex. He found pin-drop silence over there.
Meant to be 700 years ancient, the caves have long been connected with the Knights Templar, a Catholic military order which played the basic role at the time of the Crusades. Named precisely after the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, where the order was and founded in 1119 shield pilgrims visiting this Holy Land.
The military influence of the Templar lessened with the loss of the Holy Land, albeit they still held amazing financial sway in medieval Europe. The French King Philip IV, who had a wish of wiping out all his monetary possessions to the order, launched a plot for bringing the Knights Templar down in 1307. Numerous Templars were arrested on charges with the inclusion of heresy and dozens were then burned at this stake.
Treasure hunters discovered gold with ancient jewellery:
In 1312, Pope Clement V dispersed the order. The caves had been closed for so many years before the visit of Michael Scott. In 2012, black magic rites reportedly compelled the owners for sealing up the caves’ entrance in order to keep away the vandals as well as the practitioners of black magic activities. A lot of people think that the caves are 700 years old.
