Scott's Grotto is primarily a sequence of six interconnected rooms that together constitute a tunnel of 67 feet (20 meters), reaching up to the chalk hillside. Built by Johnson Scott, this cave is surrounded by a beautiful garden. The construction of this grotto began in 1760, and took over 30 years to complete. The structure is decorated with flints, pieces of colored glass, shells and other pretty stones. This grotto was said to have been built either as Scott's poetry writing corner, or to provide work to the unemployed youths in his locality.
