HRS 1159 Secondary excavation showing support pillar

The Frodsham Caves are remarkable for two reasons. First they preserve a three-dimensional image of a time when Frodsham was in a hot dry climate desert with braided river deposits of sand and secondly, that very sand has been quarried since at least medieval times.
