About the Caves

Buckfastleigh Caves are a series of limestone caves situated in the disused Higher Kiln Quarry. Only the Joint Mitnor Cave is suitable for visits by the general public and is managed by the Pengelly Trust.

The parking for the Caves is readily accessed by heading towards the South Devon Railway from the A38 junction but turning right into Russets Lane well before the railway.
