It's situated in Shropshire, England, and called The Caynton Caves. Since 2012, the landowners have closed to the public the community, but all through its 700 hundred years background it housed many privacy seekers like pagans, druids, Templars, and religious sects, that used employed it as a secure ceremony area.

"If you didn't know it was there you would just stroll right past it," photographer Michael Scott mentioned. "It's probably less than a meter underground, so it's more into the area than under it."

The 33-year old cut back-back some amazing shots that truly capture the essence of these eerie caves.
