Tilly Whin

Purbeck stone mining caves at Tilly Whin. These were a landscape feature in George Burt's estate and also a tribute to the limestone that made his fortune. They are fenced off now as the caves are dangerous, Indeed someone drowned there quite recently

It makes a great looking rocky bluff. Interesting about the caves and the history of the place.
