UK»England»London»Chislehurst Caves

The caves at Chislehurst are a labrynth of man made tunnels, forming a maze of 6 hectares and are up to 30 metres below the homes and woodlands above.

Chislehurst Caves are a labyrinth of dark mysterious passageways which have been hewn by hand from the chalk, deep beneath Chislehurst. There are over 20 miles of caverns and passageways, dug over a period of 8000 years. The vast complex of caves are a maze of ancient mines originally carved out in the search for flint and chalk. They are divided into three main sections, Saxon, Druid and Roman. Each section was later connected by digging joining passages.
