On the road 🇬🇧

The Hellfire Caves, High Wycombe 🇬🇧

The Hellfire Caves of West Wycombe are a network of man-made chalk and flint caverns in Buckinghamshire, England, made famous by their sordid past. They are named after the infamous Hellfire Club, made up of high-ranking members of society, noblemen, and politicians, who are believed to have engaged in pagan rituals, orgies, and black magic deep within the subterranean chambers beneath West Wycombe.

Dashwood Mausoleum, High Wycombe 🇬🇧

Prominently sitting atop a hill in West Wycombe, is an unusually shaped building called the Dashwood Mausoleum. This open-top, hexagonal structure houses the remains of the Dashwood family members, a prominent family related to Sir Francis Dashwood, who was the 11th Baron le Despencer. Not only was Sir Francis Dashwood a Baron, but he also was a politician, Chancellor of Exchequer between 1762 and 1763, and most famously, the founder of the infamous Hellfire Club.

Longleat Estate, Warminster 🇬🇧

Longleat is a landscape park covering around 505 hectares, with 19th and 20th century formal gardens of 2.5 hectares. The site is now primarily known as the safari park introduced by the Marquess of Bath in 1964.
