The Hellfire caves in west Wycombe which are now a tourist attraction were once home to the notorious “Hellfire Club” In the 1750’s and early 1760’s the high society of the time met in the deep, dark caves to do all manor of strange things. Meetings occurred twice a month, with an AGM lasting a week or more in June or September. Many rumours of black magic, satanic rituals and orgies were in circulation during the life of the club. Dashwood's club meetings often included mock rituals, pornographic materials, much drinking, wenching and banqueting. The early 1760s saw the downfall of Dashwood's exclusive club, and The Hellfire Club had been dissolved by 1766
