First noted as 30m shaft in the 1986 logbook, this was finally descended at Easter 2014.
An 8m pitch lands on a muddy ledge with another 8m pitch to the 10 x 4m base with no way on. The floor is mud, cobbles, rubbish and bones.

Near the top of the lower shaft, a narrow rift leads off but, opposite this, is an enterable opening and it is possible to swing across to enter 1 x 1m passage. After 4m the passage opens into a small chamber (2.5 x 3 x 3m high). It is possible to see down between the loose mud and rock floor and stones rattlw down a "fair way". This could be a filled parallel shaft to the main one, only filled with large blocks and cobbles. It could be dug, although stacking space could be tricky.
