View of Glenora escarpment

At Glenora there is a cave some 50 feet from the top, which can only be reached by a narrow path along the face of the cliff.

During the Seven Years War, a French admiral watched from the cave while the British and French fleets fought one of the last marine battles of the war. Fearing defeat, the admiral hid all his treasure in an adjoining room-sized cave and sealed the small entrance to it.

Fact or ficton? You decide …
