[A surface crack which drops to 15m and widens to 2m. A small passage on the right is too tight but a further drop lies beyond and this could yield to a lump hammer.]

In 2010 this shaft was re-explored and pushed, and described as

"Tight entry at surface enters the middle of three joined elliptical shafts. Approx 12m descent lands on cobble filled base. A 1 metre climb down enters the base of the largest of the pots. A rift leads off into the hill. A tightish squeeze leads to a further few metres of roomier passage but no way on is evident. At the base of the climb down on the right (looking into the hillside) is a small hole that was enlarged sufficiently to pass into a small chamber. A rift in the floor slowly widens until it appears possible to descend some 3 metres further in. Lucky stone throws rattle down it for a good few metres but impossible to gauge depth. A slight inward draught possibly detected. The bones of at least two different species of animals litter the base of the shaft."
