Hidden behind the former abbey The ‘Secret Grotto’ is a local legend it is surreal looking and is slowly being taken over by nature. Adorning the walls are beautiful shells, quartz and pieces of blue and green glass. Benches, shelves and traditional feathers are carved into the walls and a huge chandelier rests on the ground where it has fallen.
The grotto building is in the garden of Talacre Abbey and was purportedly added to the complex at the late end of the 19th century. Formerly the home of the Mostyn baronets of Talacre. The Carmelite Margaret Mostyn grew up on the estate in the early 1600s. In 1919 the Mostyn family sold the estate by auction and in 1921 it was occupied by a community of Benedictine nuns, who moved out in 1988
The cemetery, unfortunately is abandoned and unkempt.

Sounds like an interesting place and I'm sure someone would want to take a look so thanks for sharing...

This sort of information wants to belong in leads and rumours though, the report section is for sharing what you've found with a write up sharing your experience of exploring the place and photos of the location :thumb

Problem with photos on your last couple of posts @grindle
Did you forget to 'insert' them on the editing page or is this symptomatic of a new bulletin board problem?

No admin tell me that at the moment images don’t auto upload one has to do it manually until they fix it so 3rd time lucky
