The cave entrance has been obliterated by bulldozing in the late nineteen seventies. A tight entrance slope led immediately to a 9m pitch. A small streamway ended at a draughting but narrow and sand-choked rift on the left.
In summer 2006, a shakehole possibly in the correct place was investigated. The hole at the base could be dug out but there doesn't appear to be an immediate 9m drop.
The original entrance coordinates are VN52889813 Alt. 168m (ETRS89: 30T 452778 4797921). The survey has the entrance 54m due north of the barn. This possible entrance shakehole is about 15m to the southwest of the summer 2006 position.
The grid reference at the top is one taken from the survey and is in the field.
