The town of Royston, in Hertfordshire, was formerly in Cambridgeshire. The population is around 15,000.
Historically, the town developed where two ancient thoroughfares crossed: Icknield Way and Ermine Street.
Visit the man-made Royston Cave dating from the 13th Century which may have been used by the Knights Templar. It is fashioned in the shape of a beehive with an opening the top for ventilation. It is most notable for its wall carvings which appear to be medieval. There are Masonic symbols indicating a possible link with Freemasonry. It might have been a spiritual centre, hermitage or a prison. Nobody knows!
At the Royston Museum you can trace the history of the area from the Ice Age to the 1950s: Stone Age axe heads; Victorian farming equipment; World War II helmets; and even a Rubics Cube! One of the best attractions is a 1855 Columbian Printing Press that originally printed the Royston Crow. On designated days you can see it in operation. Also see the ceramics and glassware collection.
