Restored Rock House at  Holy Austin Rock
Restored Rock House at Holy Austin Rock
The rock houses hewn out of the sandstone Holy Austin Rock, Kinver Edge were occupied from the 1600s through to the 1960s. At one time up to 11 families occupied a warren of rooms over three levels. The lower rock house has been painstakingly restored by the National Trust with a recreated 1900's bedroom and parlour. The houses were very comfortable, being cool in summer and warm in winter.
