The initial chamber leads to a series of loose, cross jointed passages. A sandy crawl then leads to a length of nicely decorated passage which ends at two large chambers. There are holes between the boulders and one has been descended to 19m.
The above description was taken from the 1979 exploration account. The cave was re-explored, re-surveyed, photographed and extended into Ann Summers in 2005, although the pitch down mentioned above was not found. A nearby dig (site 2223) was opened up and nearly connected. The original survey was found to be 90º out.
The entrance may have been sealed off with a door in the past and the remains are stone pillars and a lintel.
