For centuries people had dug into the soft sandstone of Kinver Edge to create the famous cave houses. Occupancy was recorded in 1777 and in 1861 there were 11 cave dwellings. In the 1950's they were declared unfit for human habitation and the families were relocated. However there was a cafe in the caves up till 1967. Reconstruction of the main houses began in 1992 and today you can visit one of them, faithfully restored complete with 1900's period furniture and fittings. Opening times to follow soon.
