A clifftop campsite at Crimdon. Crimdon was a popular holiday resort for miners and their families from nearby towns and villages. It had a fairground and pavilion and was popular for day trips. The 1970s and 80s saw Crimdon's decline as a resort as the popularity of foreign travel increased. There is still (2012) a caravan park. The area has become popular with birdwatchers.
