Mother Shipton's Cave

The legend goes that she spent her early life living in the cave that now carries her name. When she was about two years old, her mother apparently gave her into the care of a foster mother. Agatha herself is said to have spent the rest of her life in a convent in Nottingham. Mother Shiptons’s Cave is located along the River Nidd, in the heart of Knaresborough, on the opposite bank of the Castle. The cave sits right next to the Petrifying Well.
