Andys did not need the number of letters (omission was an oversight not deliberate) - he is spot on.

Flange Swallet is so insignificant that in 1969 I "did" it by lying on some stones in the stream bed.

Thank God that is over!

It is in your hands now Andys.

At risk of drawing myself into a game I'm no good at; it's presumably Rocket Drop.

It's an anagram of a shaving trucker. It's a cave on the Doward by Symonds Yat. Paleolithic remains have been found there.

Well, I got that an'all, but having removed 'cave' I couldn't make any sense of the rest (never having heard of the site in question).
