The entrance, with an overhanging rock ceiling, is in an impressive depression. A climb up a wall enters an ascending streamway with walking and stooping for about 50m to a draughting, easily dug boulder choke. The stream is used as a water supply.
The above description was mainly written when the cave was first explored by MCP cavers in 1980. Unfortunately, the site was positioned wrongly (about a kilometre to the east) and so, when a cave in an impressive depression was found in August 2018, it was thought to be new. The mistake was realized a few weeks later, after the cave had been resurveyed and photos taken. The cave has a sandstone roof, shale walls and a limestone floor.
