Cave Homes: Can You Dig It?

Go beneath the surface and explore the hidden lives of underground homes.

The sandstone cave homes of Kinver Edge are thought to have inspired J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit.” Regulated by the earth’s natural temperature, the homes stayed warm in winter and cool in summer. Although the Kinver Edge cave homes are no longer inhabited, several families lived in them at their peak in the 1800s.
