Hellfire and Damnation!

Well as the easter holidays approach I am always thinking of good places to take the kids.  When I say good – of course I mean spooky places that will be sure to give them (and me) nightmares.

The Hellfire Caves, Wycombe is a good place to go.  Although it’s not very big and a bit of a trek for me, the kids love it and there is definitely something about the place.  Built into the chalk hills it was once the meeting place for the Hellfire Club, kind of the Masons of the time I guess.  In addition to the caves there is a church on top of the hill with an awesome graveyard complete with huge mausoleum and broken tombs.  The whole place has a certain presence to it.  Halloween is the best time to visit, but hell that’s months away.
