Lying on the South side of Filey Bay on Yorkshire's North Sea Coast, Filey Brigg is a natural rock promontory with a long history from Roman times only. With interesting geology, marine life and surrounded by hundreds of wrecks, 'the Brigg' and a rock built underwater structure on its South side 'The Spittals', has always fascinated and mystified.
In 1995 a group of local divers with a shared intrest in the Archaeology, Biology and history of the Brigg set up the Filey Brigg and Research Group. Over the coming years a series of small grants enabled the group to become properly qualified in Marine Archaeology and complete one of the most comprehensive surveys of a large underwater rock built structure ever completed by amateur divers in this country.
