The combination of a massive landslip in 1664 and further slips over the years, along with the new access road built in 1962,
the new houses associated with it and the sea wall of 1970, have left Runswick Bay looking very modern.
However tucked away up the back you can still find some older parts of the village with the narrow alleyways and higgledy-piggledy houses
so characteristic of old fishing villages.
