Depth 9m
Area position

Updated 5th October 2013; 4th May 2016

Water flows into this unexplored 9m deep shaft in wet weather, and can be heard falling. A large rock now blocks the top of the shaft.

Sites 2890-2895 were first documented at Easter 2008 with a suspect GPS. An annotated map was used to position sites. They were reinvestigated in July 2013. Site codes used during this visit were tied to the original number after reading the old descriptions and viewing photographs. This moved the original positions in quite random directions! Sites 2890-2894 now have the new GPS coordinates; site 2895 was not seen and it is likely that site 1190 should be further to the east. Site 2891 could also be quite close to its original position rather than one 15 - 20m lower. See map in log book (28/7/13). See also site 3933 and site 3934.

The shaft may have been spotted in April 2016 at 30T 0452298 4794858, altitude 412m.
