Billingshurst Cave

The top of the cave entrance is just above the surface and the bottom is at 27 metres. A long tunnel called the Railway tunnel on its account of its size it leads to a further cave where we can surface.

Large sea swells create a booming sound as they crash into the outer cave giving that part of the cave the nickname “Booming Cave” as the story goes in 1984 a team of divers decided to explore the tunnel and, after 50 metres, found they were able to surface where they found a message wrapped in a plastic bag.

The message said that the cave had already been “discovered” and explored by “Billingshurst Sub Aqua Club” and invited divers to add their names before resealing the plastic bag. Thus Billingshurst cave came into being.
