No guesses?     Perhaps this photo may help?

Coming down from the cavern you'll come across this sign.    It's Friday today so I wonder if they will have fish on the menu?

A good try Steve but it's not the Devil's pulpit

It's in Denbighshire and I think that it may have been the Romans leading the way into the cave rather than the devil

Is it the old Fish Mine (lead ?) below Gwaenysgor and overlooking Prestatyn Golf course?  The path leading past the Offa's Paddock notice board could be the route of the old railway up to Dyserth if my memory is right.

Well done Cambrian, you're spot on.         &well&

It's an old lead mine, one of many in the area but this one is not blocked off.     I've not been far inside the cave but you only have to go a few yards inside it and the temperature gets quite cold.  It's a bit like being in a fridge

That's a love;y photo Hollins but I've cheated so I'll leave it to Mull and others to say the answer.

Well done lads!
It's Bow Fiddle Rock on the Moray Coast. We are back from a holiday up there exploring the fishing villages and walking the Moray Coast path.

It does sound like a nice place to go to and I hope that you weren't troubled by the Midges up there at this time of the year

No problem with midges in the North East but we also went to Arran for a couple of days and when we visited the gardens at Brodick Castle one drizzly damp day they were out in force there.

How to enjoy Midges.

Remember Wainwright from the Lake District being asked when interviewed on a Skye holiday how he coped with them.
His answer was , they don't like it when you smoke St Bruno in your pipe !

Not bothering Mrs Mull and I at the moment, we are enjoying 3 weeks in Porthcurno, Cornwall.

Looking at the weather up north I don't think next door will have had to water our plants very often.
