Kinver Edge is a red sandstone ridge into which are excavated underground or trogladytic dwellings. These were amongst the last occupied in the UK, having residents until the 1960s. The name Holy Austin dates back to before the reformation, when the site was a Hermitage.
The site is now owned by the National Trust and two properties have been restored; one to the Victorian period and the other showing what life was like in the 1930s. A garden area and orchard are also on site. Unrestored houses can be seen both on Holy Austin Rock and nearby.
