Wookey Hole Caves () are a series of limestone caverns, a show cave and tourist attraction in the village of Wookey Hole on the southern edge of the Mendip Hills near Wells in Somerset, England. The River Axe flows through the cave. It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for both biological and geological reasons. Wookey Hole cave is a "solutional cave", one that is formed by a process of weathering in which the natural acid in groundwater dissolves the rocks. Some water originates as rain that flows into streams on impervious rocks on the plateau before sinking at the limestone boundary into cave systems such as Swildon's Hole, Eastwater Cavern and St Cuthbert's Swallet; the rest is rain that percolates directly through the limestone. The temperature in the caves is a constant

  • Die Wookey Hole Caves sind Kalksteinhöhlen im Dorf Wookey Hole am Südrand der Mendip Hills in der Nähe von Wells in Somerset, in England. Der River Axe fließt durch die Höhlen. Es ist aus biologischen und geologischen Gründen ein Standort von besonderem wissenschaftlichen Interesse (englisch Site of Special Scientific Interest – SSSI). Die Wookey Hole Höhle ist eine Karsthöhle (englisch Solution cave), die durch Verwitterungsprozesse gebildet wird, bei denen Kalkgestein im Wasser gelöst wird. Regenwasser bildete auch die Höhlensysteme Eastwater Cavern, St Cuthberts Swallet und Swildon's Hole. Die Temperatur in den Höhlen liegt konstant bei 11 °C. Ein Teil des Höhlensystems wurde 1927 als Schauhöhle eröffnet. Die Höhlen wurden auch als Drehort für Film- und Fernsehproduktionen genutzt.
