It seems that John Bramwell (1815-1900) was the last person to live in any of the cave houses in this sandstone outcrop. Most of his adult life was spent living in a cave-house here. He and his wife Sarah had raised 10 children, all of whom were born in his abode. Only one had died during infancy and all of the others apparently survived into old age.
