Site Description

A NW-facing cave 3.4m wide, 3m high and lofty for 5.5m.
An examination of 1m square area near the entrance revealed that 2m of deposits had already been removed. Patinated palaeolithic flints suggested undisturbed deposits remain. The rear of the cave appears undisturbed, and the presence of a now blocked pothole in the ceiling - a former animal trap? - suggests the cave has great potential.
