Eastry chalk caves
Eastry chalk caves
Exact location and view direction very difficult to estimate. Somewhere under Eastry village hall or car park! Eastry Chalk Mine was started in 1811 for a lime burning business and remained in production until 1914. Mining ceased when local villagers began to voice their concerns that their properties were in danger of collapse because of the mining beneath them. The tunnels were then used to hold local festivities. See LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
