Summary of site:

At the bottom of a shake hole there is a narrow crack, the entrance into a small chamber, followed by a 6m drop into a larger chamber with a perched floor of jammed boulders. A climb down enters bedding plane crawls with the sound of flowing water. A high level phreatic tube (formed earlier in the cave’s evolution when this section was entirely below the water table) in a passage to the side of the larger chamber is filled with mud.
