Frodsham Caves

The last time I came here I was about ten. Not much is known about the history of the caves but it’s thought they’re an an example of medieval sandstone mining. There’s a lot of modern graffiti but also some which goes back to the 19th Century. The caves show the stratification caused by an ancient river. They go quite far into the hillside but it gets very dark very quickly and we’d cleverly left the torch in the car. The place is off the beaten track and most people seem to have forgotten the caves are even there. After we’d been there a while we heard what sounded like shots from a rifle very close by; maybe rabbit hunting going on. I’m almost sure it wasn’t us being hunted. We got out of there soon after anyway, just in case.

    1. Sorry, I only just noticed your question. You go past what used to be the Mersey View and is now Forest Hills with it on you right, follow that road for a mile or so till you come to a T junction. The caves are in the fields facing you at that junction. You have to walk the rest of the way. Warning: take wellies as there is a lot of cow ***t. Did you see the video vlog I did about the caves on YouTube? That shows you pretty much where they are.
