Summary of site:

Fairy Cave appears to be part of an old series of passages above the main Reyfad system. It runs for 50m along a limestone joint (a natural fracture caused by stress). The passage is 1m high at best and ends in a sump pool, beyond which is a steep slope ending in a silt-choked hole.
