The Wookey Hole caves are one of the most striking natural attractions in Somerset, England. They appeared thanks to the river Ex, which flows under the soft Mendip hills. The caves got their name in honor of the witch from the village of Wookey Hole, however, translated from Latin, Celtic and Norman languages, it will be translated only as “Cave”.
The average temperature in the dungeon rarely rises above 10 degrees. But, despite this, people lived here in the Iron Age. This is evidenced by archaeological excavations. In 1544, traces of Roman mines where lead was mined were also found here. Today Wookey Hole Caverns is a popular tourist attraction. Various expositions and exhibitions with the latest lighting systems are organized here. There is also a shop and a restaurant in the caves.
Among the main attractions of Wookey Hole is the huge stalagmite that grows in the first hall. In its form, it resembles a person. The locals call him the petrified monk.

Archaeologists have found evidence that even 50 thousand years ago, ancient people and animals lived in the caves of the Wookie village. And if Wookey Hole was occupied by people in the Iron Age, then in the nearby Hyena cave, ancient hunters lived in the Stone Age, and in the dry caves of Badger and Rhino, located just above the Wookey Gorge, sediments from the Ice Age are still preserved.
Today, the caves are open to the public with guided tours, during which they tell the history of the caves and their inhabitants, as well as the ancient legend of the bloodthirsty witch from Wookiee, after whom the caves were named. In the first chamber of the caves stands a 20-foot-tall stalagmite that represents a petrified witch.
