Possibly bricked in entrance to rail tunnel

I'm not aware of any railway in this part of Sidmouth, nor what purpose it could have served if it had been there. Is it more likely to be either a natural formation, or possibly a bricked up cave? There's no trace in recent photographs of Sidmouth that I've seen - the cliff has been eroded in that area by storms in 2012, I understand.
