Living inside the cliff

Rock Houses on Kinver Edge

The Rock Houses on Kinver Edge either look appealingly rustic or chillingly primitive, depending on your outlook.  These homes, actually cut into the side of the rock-face, were lived in right until the 1950s...
They are a tourist attraction now.

  1. Well at least they would have been warm inside, don't the national trust own them now.

    1. Yes, you're right, they were warm, as they had fireplaces, with the chimnies up through the cliff and out.
      The National Trust opens them up pretty much every day - though you need to check actual times, as it's not a 9-5 business.

  3. I'd live there! Then again, that may not be the most ringing endorsement...
