The cave, beneath a farmer's field in Shropshire, was used by the medieval religious order that fought in the Crusades and these stunning images were captured by photographer Michael Scott

The stunning labyrinth is lit with candles

It is thought the cave was built as a place to worship

The cave is less than a metre underground
