Approach

Unknown

Entrance

Steep shakehole, very grassy, northern side of hole exposed (no trees)

Description

At bottom of shakehole 6 m pitch. Followed by 2 m climb. Slot with bottom visible.  Stones dropped go nowhere.  
 
Shake hole with 19 m pitch. At the bottom is an L-shaped chamber, 2 m wide, 10 m long.  A 10 inch crack, with a slight draught, goes down a further 4 m. This needs to be re-investigated.
 
2011 report - 20m pitch to a tight continuation. Still a slight draught, but would require hammering to enlarge.
 
2014 - the crack was enlarged and the floor dug for a couple of hours.  However, it appears that crack leads to parallel shaft, T554
