The HellFire Caves go deep into the West Wycombe Hill. A quarter of a mile underground the narrow winding passages take you into various chambers such as Franklin's Cave, Miners Cave and the Banqueting Hall finally ending up at the Inner Temple after you have crossed the bridge over the River Styx. Sir Francis Dashwood originally excavated the Caves in the 1750s to give employment to the villagers following a succession of harvest failures. Waxwork models, a commentary, and realistic sound effects help to bring the history of these unique caves to life. You can explore the tunnels and caverns staying cool on a hot day, and dry on a wet day. Everyone will enjoy this unique family adventure, which begins at the imposing flint entrance, built to look like a Gothic church, which stands high above West Wycombe and the valley. There is so much to discover along the way, from 18th century tools, to details of the Hell Fire Club, formed by Sir Dashwood. When you reach your final destination of the Inner Temple, you will be several hundred feet below the church with its golden ball on the top of the hill! There is a gift shop and cafe serving homemade cakes, cream teas, and light snacks. In addition you can enjoy a picnic on the surrounding hillside.

It may be one of the most famous of all parish churches in England, but this is not to do with its architecture or ancient origins. Rather, it owes its popularity to the eccentric Francis Dashwood, Lord le Despence and owner of nearby West Wycombe Park. In 1763 Dashwood rebuilt the medieval parish church in the popular classical manner. He removed the arcades, making the nave into a large, open chamber. Almost all the furnishings date from this time. The interior is filled with fantastic frescoes by Italian artists. The most mpressive painting is on the chancel ceiling. Painted by Giovanni Borgnis, who also painted the Great Staircase at West Wycombe Park, this depicts the Last Supper. The most famous architectural feature of the church is the large golden ball built by Dashwood atop the tower. This ball is hollow, and has seating for 6 people within. Dashwood modelled the ball after a similar one on the custom house in Venice. It is said to have been used by members of the infamous Hell Fire Club, founded by Dashwood. The oldest feature of the interior is a memorial brass to John Syot (d1475) and there is a grave slab to Richard and Emma East (d1583). There is a monument to Lord Despence himself (d1781) and other members of the Dashwood family.

On top of West Wycombe Hill, next to the Church of St. Lawrence stands the magnificent Dashwood Mausoleum. Originally a hill fort, the mausoleum itself was built in the 1760s and is an unroofed hexagonal structure with tall walls lined with local flint and topped with arches linking the walls. The mausoleum was built by John Bastard and designed by Nicholas Revett for Sir Francis Dashwood, 2nd Baronet and 11th Baron le Despencer, to house the memorials of his friends and family. Sir Francis was responsible for rebuilding the Church of St. Lawrence on the same site, placing a great gilded gold ball (inspired by the Customs Building in Venice) on top of the church’s tower to house his drinking parties. A similar tower with a golden ball was also erected by John Norris (on his residence), a good friend of Sir Francis, who lived in nearby Hughenden Manor. It is rumoured that Dashwood and Norris used to signal each other via heliograph (using mirrors and sunlight to send messages in code) from their respective towers.
