Boggle Hole is located on the Cleveland Way, halfway between Scarborough and Whitby, close to Robin Hoods Bay.
A Boggle is the local name for a Hobgoblin, who are supposed to be mischievous little people who were thought to live in caves along the coast.
Boggle Hole is a crevice in the dominant cliff face, cut by the Mill Beck river. An old watermill, built in the 1600's sits on the mouth of the river, once used for grinding corn, it is now part of the YHA.
The YHA bought the mill in 1951.
