Mother Shipton is England’s most famous Prophetess. She lived some 500 years ago during the reigns of King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I.

Her Prophetic visions became known and feared throughout England, with many of them still proving uncannily accurate today.

The Cave, her legendary birthplace is near to the famous, unique, geological phenomenon - The Petrifying Well. See its magical cascading waters turn items into stone!

The Petrifying Well is England’s Oldest Visitor Attraction, first opening its gates in 1630!

Mother Shiptons Cave & The Petrifying Well lie at the heart of the Mother Shipton Estate – a relic of the Ancient Forest of Knaresborough.
