A short dig through soil and clay gave access to a hands and knees crawling which consists of several interlinked phreatic passages on the same development horizon. There are 2 small (15m deep?) shafts to, as yet unreachable, lower levels. One prospect was not pushed as it might have taken 5 minutes to dig! The site needs further work. (Estimate of length to come).
At Easter 2009, attempts to get down the shaft were thwarted by small dimensions. A dig across the top of this shaft into a continuation has been started, and then put on hold until another attempt on the shaft by someone smaller. The 5 min dig proved to be over optimistic.
In January 2013, the "most amazing forest of mushrooms growing from the rotten wood laying across the pitch" was seen.
