Access to these workings can be tricky, the quickest route is probably via ropes to the beach at Deepgrove Wyke near the southern portal of the Sandsend Tunnel, also check the tide tables before setting off.
There are a series of largeÂ cuttings into the base of the cliff, these are then interconnected by a passage running parallel to the shore, the whole cliffÂ is very unstable and should be visited with caution.
The most easterly cutting contains a shelf approximately 6ft high, progressing onto this there are two distinct passages both filled with washed-in debris (including aÂ step ladder)Â and collapses. The workings are fairlyÂ high with plenty of head room.
A high parallel passage runs inside the cliff to the second cutting, however there are no deeper workings behind this entrance.
A waterfall empties over the third large cutting, behind this entrance are again much deeper passages into the cliff.
After about 20m the workings again become clogged with washed-in debris and roof collapses.
