The former Shakespeare Colliery site circa early 1950s. The large building seen on the left is the colliery boiler house, now devoid of its chimney. Buildings close to the lower cliff top date from WW2; that to the left overlooking the sea is one of the coast artillery searchlights. The railway cottages are seen to the left of the Akers steps.
