Holy Austin Rock, Kinver, Staffordshire

    Newer Older

    Homes in the rock. From the 1600's until the 1960's whole families lived comfortably in cave dwellings hewn into the soft sandstone along Kinver Edge. The rock houses here at Holy Austin Rock are among the finest in Europe.
    Eleven families lived here in a warren of whitewashed rooms on three levels. Now looked after by The National Trust.

      Lovely Gethin did you go inside or walked up the path by the cafe. It is an amazing place. If you go next time take the hill walk the views above these caves are brilliant with the old Iron fort mound still there

      No it was all shut when I went. But I remember going about 30 years ago when it was all open to the elements and you could just wander around inside. No proper doors or windows or furniture.
