Most people believe that the Knights Templar created these caves back in the 17th century. As usual, the main theory is that the famous order used this place as a secret room for their meetings.

But apart from this theory, there are also those who think that Caynton Caves is only a “Victorian folly.” These were buildings that served no real purpose other than to show off one’s wealth and status. Historic England, the “public body that protects and maintains England’s historic environment,” said that they found “neo-Norman architectural features.”
Likewise, this theory might prove that Caynton Caves only served an ornamental purpose back in the Victorian Era. However, there is no real confirmation yet. Who knows, maybe it had existed back in the 11th century and was only reused centuries later?
