Its a hole in the rock!
Aug 2019
What can anyone say exept its a hole in the sandstone cliff, prehaps abit more TLC might help, like some lighting and removal of the graffiti on the walls.

Piece Of Local History
Apr 2019 • Couples
Down in Lower Town and by the River, this site dates back to the Civil War, and the importance of the Town Defence's, It is worth a look, the surrounding gardens are pleasant.

Interesting site
Apr 2019 • Couples
We passed here on the way into the town from the station. There are information boards explaining about Lavington's Hole, caves and spaces of red sandstone. The flower beds around are thoughtfully planted with bright spriong flowers

Dog excrement everywhere
Dec 2018 • Family
Like everywhere else in Bridgnorth, this place had dog excrement everywhere. Why can't people in this town clear up after their dogs? Just to make things worse, the public toilets are credit card only, and did not accept foreign credit cards, so we couldn't access them. Very disappointing town - won't be back!

Very interesting tunnels into the soft sandstone only 100 yds from the Severn Bridge. These tunnels date from the civil war when Colonel Lavington wanted to destroy the Royalist ammunition stored in St Mary's Church. This August the whole area is beautifully decorated for Britain in Bloom.

Well worth a look if in the area
Apr 2018 • Solo
An interesting piece of Civil War history with a small garden in front and the nicely written explanation of the history of "The Hole" helps to brings it alive. It would be lovely to have the opportunity to explore inside but I guess that there could be problems with safety.

Randomly found driving past
Apr 2018 • Friends
I checked on google if there was anything to see near me, but nothing was coming up...so I started driving and soon went straight past here! I had to reverse up and park as I just really didn’t expect to see something so nice without anything online really speaking of it!

It’s a shame that they have blocked all the entrances, as I would’ve loved to have gone inside! But other than that and the idiots carvings in the stones the whole area is really neat, pretty and tidy!

Interesting historical war caves - nicely preserved
Apr 2018 • Family
Located near the bottom of the Cliff Railway, the Lavington's Hole caves in the red sandstone cliffs are easy to miss (in fact i did last time i was in Bridgnorth!), but an interesting find nether the less.
Dug during the civil war, they are a very interesting historic relic from the past.
Shame you can't go inside the main cave tunnel - but safety first.

A lovely surprise
Oct 2017 • Couples
At the foot of the Castle Railway sits this surprising little attraction. We enjoyed reading the information board and taking in the site of an important historic event.

Great history
Sep 2017 • Solo
There's a great story to this place, and I could relay it here, but that would spoil the surprise when you go there, as you should if you're visiting Bridgnorth.
