Port Mulgrave harbour built to service local iron stone mines.There is a drift mine entrance at the bottom of the cliff from where ran a gantry used to carry the iron ore to the harbour. Outer harbour wall blown up during WWII to minimise threat of invasion.
Thank you fatturkey for these informative details. The acces to the sea level is still rather tricky (but easier than 30 years ago when I discovered it for the first time). I like this coast from Robin Hoods Bay to Staithes where I found fossils in the past.
Thank you for visiting Sigh. It's a lovely place and there are potentially many beautiful pictures to do in this area according to the weather and the light conditions. I hope I can went again here with better camera and photographic skills...
