Our guides will take you on an hour long tour through the vast man-made complex of underground caverns with their mighty halls of vaulted roofs and pillars of Beer Stone which have been likened to a vast underground cathedral.
See for yourself the methods used to quarry and deliver the huge blocks of stone, the working conditions, the hardships endured and the dangers faced daily by the work-force using only the light from a flickering tallow candle and you may never again see a famous building with the same eyes.
The caves are cool so please bring warm clothing and it’s best to arrive at least 10 mins before the tours start and no need to book unless you are a large party.
Useful Quarry Facts
Tue Sept 10th – Farm Walk and Cave Tour 11am – 1.30pm. Join staff from Clinton Devon Estates and the East Devon AONB to enjoy a walk around surrounding farmland. You will learn how the area is looked after to create great places for bats, especially the greater horseshoe bat. After this there will be a guided underground cave tour. The quarry and caves have a fascinating history, and are also an important winter roost for greater horseshoes and other bats. No dogs please.
