Wind shelter and visitor information, Nose's Point
This area was the location of Dawdon Pit which mined coal deep below the North Sea. Founded in 1907 it was one of the most productive pits in the country. Waste from the pit was dumped directly into the sea over the cliffs at Nose's Point until it closed in 1991. The action of the sea and a project called 'Turning the Tide' has now cleaned up much of the coastline LinkExternal link
