Beer Quarry Caves
The Beer Quarry Caves is a fascinating and unique historical site in England. It is located in East Devon and is easily accessible from the different holiday cottages. Plan a day-out with your family during your dog friendly holidays to explore the caves and go on a guided tour of the cave so you do not get lost inside the cave and you also get the chance to look at the highlights of the caves as well as get more information about it. The caves were once an underground quarry that was worked on by the Romans. Stones from this quarry were used in more than 20 cathedrals and structures which include St. Paul’s, Exeter, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London and Hampton Court. Each block was quarried by hand. The smallest one had a weight of 5 tons and was transported through horse-driven barges and wagons. Beer Beach was where the stones were transported from going to its final destination which is hundreds of miles away. The stones were unique as you could carve find details into it when it was freshly quarried but when exposed to air; the stone hardens and becomes a beautiful white colour. Today, you see the Roman Section as soon as you enter the cave which is a museum with different displays of stone carved hundreds of years ago by the highly skilled masons. You will also see the different tools used by the masons as well as photographs and documents of the quarrying activities. Further into the cave are the areas where the Saxons and Normans quarried. The sight looks like a huge underground cathedral. Quarrying was done until the 20th century.
