RE: Pirates Cave Blackhall Rocks.
I was born and lived in a village 2 mile away called Monk Hesleden, where there was an old Norman Church that was supposed to be linked by a tunnel to, what we called Smugglers Cave, Blackhall Rocks. This tale was well known by the local community, unfortunately the church (St Marys I believe) was demolished in the earlly 1960s, the bell from the church went to Holy Island.
