  A couple of digs in a double, closed depression. Site 2592 is the smaller.
  The second is site 2593. It has a rift about 5m wide with trees growing on floor. In the floor is further drop between boulders, which needed some rock moving to get in. It looked roomy below, with an inward draught. (The grid references of these two sites could do with separating).

   In 2011, the route was "partly extended" but the boulder blocking the way was 2 ton weight and needed capping. A draught was detected.

   Ten years later, the boulder was dispatched and the top of a p28 reached through a squeeze. This fine pitch was dropped from a tri-hang (due to poor rock) into a hading rift / chamber. A further 15m pitch takes off from a false floor with a rebelay part way down and lands in an area underneath the false floor. No way on was found on that second trip, although it appears that water flows into a choked, body-sized tube at the foot of the second pitch which also draughts in.
   The tube was partly cleared for 4m and it was possible to see down 5m to the right in a too-tight rift. There is no easy way on.
