I am investigating the caves of the Bristol area and I trying to locate The Grotto.  It is only briefly mentioned in Somerset Underground Volume 1 pages 63 and 64 but there is no description and it is not indexed under either G or T. 

Any photos, descriptions etc would be most welcome.

Any more information on which quarry it may be near?

I climb at leigh from time to time and would be happy to go on a little hunt.

Mike.

Google is your friend, it looks like an artificial "Grotto" there is one near us at Chatsworth House
