RESIDENCE – HELLFIRE CAVES

Location: Church Ln, West Wycombe, High Wycombe, United Kingdom HP14 3AH

Small Description: The Hellfire Caves are a network of man-made chalk and flint caverns which extend a quarter of a mile (500 metres) underground. The caves were used as a meeting place for Sir Francis Dashwood’s notorious Hellfire Club, whose members included various politically and socially important 18th century figures. The caves are a place that is steeped in myth and legend, and not least is the paranormal activity that is said to take place there, with ghost sightings reported on a regular basis.

Ghost Story: The story of Suki, The ghost bride of the Hellfire Caves, is quite a disturbing mean story which leaves you feeling sorry for her. According to the legend written on a plaque in the tunnels she was a servant girl who was employed at the nearby Ale House, the George and Dragon. Apparently she was most appealing and had high hopes of being noticed by the local squires and nobility.

The plaque states that she desired to be a bride of an aristocrat. As such, she kept herself pure and rejected the propositions of the local lads who grew increasingly irritated by her manner. There came a day when a young and wealthy nobleman visited the George and Dragon and seemed quite taken with Suki who flirted “most seriously” with him.

After he departed the angry local lads who had witnessed this interchange decided to teach Suki a lesson. Apparently, they wrote her a letter purportedly from the young man that she had just met. It stated the he wanted to elope with her and that she was to meet him in the caves in her wedding dress. Suki did as she was asked and arrived at the caves to find that she had been tricked and it is said that “Stones were thrown”. It seems that one struck Suki on the head and she collapsed to the ground. Horrified at what they had done the young men carried her to the Inn but she died during the night.

Her ghost is said to roam the caves and is also sometimes seen at the George and Dragon and many paranormal experts have claimed to have been able to make contact her.

Bonus Spook: Along the passage between The Circle and Franklin’s Cave you will discover the Roman numerals XXII deeply engraved into the chalk wall. Nobody knows for sure why they were carved at this point and various explanations have been proposed. The most interesting is that they mark the starting point from which an undisclosed tunnel can be discovered that leads to hidden caves and passages that contain the real secrets of the Friars of St.
