Local legend tells that this is a hermitage relating to the Knights of St John or their predecessors. It is formed from an aperture within the rock face. The remains of any front to the cell has long been removed for reuse in the local area.

Is it a monks cell or simply part of extensive limestone quarrying in the area?   Jim Knowles
