Rave in these caves

There’s not a lot of information about Beech Caves. The incursions into the rock, which created caves out of an original outcrop, must have been a way of quarrying for their sandstone, but any exact history seems vague.
They do seem to have been used for storing munitions during the war, but exactly who was storing the munitions is up for debate. They are abandoned now, and signs warn they are dangerous..

Anyway, even though they are a good walk from Tittensor, the nearest town, teenagers still like to hang out there and build little camp-fires and write graffiti and scare themselves, as teenagers do.
A local band, The Machine Is Off, even decided to make a video there. They called it ‘rave in a cave’…
