Access to Wilson's Cave via a small ladder within the tunnel system inside the Rock of Gibraltar
|Discovery||World War II|
Wilson's Cave is a large natural limestone cave within the Rock of Gibraltar. It was discovered by the military during World War II whilst carrying out extensive tunnelling within the Rock. The miners were developing a structure to absorb a possible blast from an exploding magazine when part of the tunnel caved into the natural cavity. The magazine was served from Doncaster Adit off the Great North Road which supplied vehicular access to the outside.
