NARRATIVE ON PRINT - This cavern was discovered so recently as in September 1842. Some quarrymen who were engaged in preparing stones for the building of the New Harbour accidentally opened up the entrance, a narrow gorge, which had been filled with rocks that had fallen from the cliff. The discovery attracted much attention at the time, and a party of ladies and gentlemen, having constituted themselves an exploring expedition, and being provided with torches, made their way into the cavern by the narrow and difficult passage, the gleaming lights revealing in all their beauty the stalactites which then hung uninjured from the walls and roof. (Notes by George Hay, 1883)
