Alt : 190 m
Length : ~20m
Location : just below the path that runs from the road and NW down across the common.
|Originally found and looked at in the 70s, explored for about 12m and soon forgotten about. By 2003 the entrance was full of rubbish and the cap had collapsed leaving an open hole. Work started to clear this and push the cave beyond the previous limit, it was during this work and after having lowered the level of sand, that the cave was found to be a flood overflow, probably for the Bean Pot water.|
|Next digging session- Unknown as yet..|
A rough idea of the dig face as it stands (2010). The dig is sporadic in nature and sees occasional bursts of activity between periods of no activity. Time, energy and flooding being the main factors.
It is hoped to return soon and obtain an up to date survey and accurate length..
The Lower Arch(ive) pages, a diary of the work on the early stages of the LA-dig, will be re-uploaded when time allows and they have been updated to the slightly newer style website.
