There is a very small entrance at ground level in a disused quarry behind the lime kiln.
A very difficult and arduous cave with a long, constricted entrance leading to extensive passages beyond. The furthest reaches of the cave reach the terminal sump which has been dived for 600m to Elm Hole in the Clydach Gorge.
