The Fairy Chapel is located on A limestone outcrop known as Humphrey Head.

Access is not good as the cave is located high up on the side of the cliff. I originally tried to access it from the top of the cliff via the footpaththe best way is to climb up from the bottom where it is marked on the photo. This is one for the enthusiast and I would not recommend the climb as it is rather treacherous I'm just daft enough to to try it. A Fantatsic little rock shelter though when you find it I was pleasantly surprised and the views out were stunning.

Fairy Church (Cave / Rock Shelter) — Fieldnotes

The Fairy church is a Natural limestone Arch high up on the cliff face of Humphrey Head this one is fairly easy to get to, however caution is advised as it is on the edge of a cliff.
A stunning rock feature and very prominent as you approach the cliff also on closer inspection theres a rather large cave inside, unfortunately unless you a caver/ climber access is impossible as it's a bit of a drop to get in.
