Knights Hole, Durham
Knights Hole, a limestone cavern in the E of Durham, near Thornley Hill, 4 miles SW of Easington. It seems partly natural, partly enlarged by art; it communicates with an ancient chapel about 60 feet to the N; and it is said to have afforded escape to two priests in the time of Elizabeth.
