Fuidebook. From Wikipedia: The two main caves open to the public are on the southside of the Gorge, owned by Longleat Estate. The extensive Gough's Cave and the smaller Cox's Cave are both named after their respective discoverers. Both are known for their geology, and it has been suggested that the caves were the site of prehistoric cheese-making.[27] Gough's cave, which was discovered in 1903,[28] leads around 400 m (437 yd) into the rock-face, and contains a variety of large rock chambers and formations. Cox's Cave, discovered in 1837,[29] is smaller but contains many intricate formations. In 2016 Cox's cave was turned into "Dreamhunters", a multimedia walk-through experience with theatrical lighting and video projection. [30] The Gorge's many caves are home to colonies of Greater and Lesser horseshoe bats.[31] In 1999 the Channel 4 television programme Time Team investigated Cooper's Hole in an attempt to find evidence of Palaeolithic human activity.[32] These caves are the inspirations for the caves behind Helm's Deep in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Two Towers.[33] Several of the caves have been scheduled as ancient monuments as nationally important archaeological sites including: Gough's Old Cave,[34] Great Oone's Hole,[35] Saye's Hole,[36] Soldier's Hole[37] and Sun Hole.[38]
