The village seems increasingly threatened by cliff erosion, though just below the houses looks reasonably safe for the time being.

At sea, a drilling rig is preparing to leave the area after working in connection with Boulby Mine which extends far out to sea.
It is possible an attempt has been made to seal off a flooded section but local opinion [on what it was doing] is divided and the activity hasn't been much reported.
