The Tunnel of Shells

By Linda Tancs

Call it Shellhenge, a mysterious shell-lined tunnel network in Margate, England.  Discovered in 1835, The Shell Grotto is a pathway and chamber beneath a residential garden, comprising 4.6 million shells forming exquisite mosaics.  Its origins are a mystery to this day.  Unique work of art, pagan temple or secret meeting house?  You decide.
