Hartburn Grotto, outer chamber

  • Description

    "Rock-cut dome, corbelled with stone blocks, in the outer chamber of the grotto [[1752963]], above the fireplace. Cup and ring carvings on the cap-stone (visible top right) are thought to be replicas rather than prehistoric, probably the work of the historian and former vicar of Hartburn, John Hodgson, or even his predecessor John Sharp who built the grotto in 1760 http://www.sacredsitespodcast.org/pdfs/script_02_hartburn_grotto.pdf" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010.
