NZ8115 : Hob Holes

Hob Holes
Hob Holes
Caves in the cliffs near Runswick Bay.
As at Boggle Hole near Robin Hood's Bay, caves here became associated with legends of hobgoblins. This one was reputed to have been able to cure whooping cough.
Other local hobs lived at Kettleness and Mulgrave Woods near Sandsend.
The original cave was destroyed by jet-mining which is probably how the current caves originated.
