An 8.5m pitch into a chamber with 5 ways on. All appear to meet in the middle and it is possible to see on 3m to 4m descending at about 30 degrees. Stones suggest that it is 10m to the next floor although the draughting way on is narrow and needs more work.
The site was re-explored at the end of September 2018 and following description written:
A cave in the very steeply bedded limestone of this area. In an open field, a shallow depression, sparsely ringed by trees, has a hole in the bottom which descends through boulders for 8m. The drop lands on a rubble slope at about 35°. The bed-rock upper wall (roof?) slopes at about 60° to meet the rubble slope. Where the two meet there are holes through which boulders drop possibly 10m. In one hole a small team could dig out boulders to assess further the likelihood of progress.
