THROWBACK THURSDAY: The Bogey Hole | photos

IT is one of Newcastle’s most stunning secrets, but the Bogey Hole remains off-limits. 

Spend a minute flicking back through the Herald’s photographic archive of the stunning swimming spot, where the region’s Greek and Macedonian Orthodox communities have traditionally carried out its blessing of the waters ceremony. 

The site is fighting an ongoing battle to re-open.

The Newcastle Herald’s Brodie Owen reported in November that work to stabilise surrounding cliffs was underway. 

The swimming hole’s closure began in late 2015 and is due to end over the summer.
