Not Tir-Dywanydd, but about as obscure.

No I disagree, it is far more obscure.

(And before I could say that I had to look up Ogof Tir-dyweunydd on the Cambrian Cave Registry, it is very obscure for a 2.5km long cave.)

I also had to look up Tir-Dywanydd - thus I postulate that obscrurity has nothing to do with passage length.   Just as with modern music obscurity has nothng to do with lack of talent.

It is indeed an enterance.    A very good looking enterance.

And the clue.......

Thats unfortunately all it is and as far as I could get:-(
but it does meet the definition of a cave and is known.

Looking up Quimps quarry cave I see it as alternative name for Dwy Sir.   That being the case its close but wrong quarry (don't know name of quarry though).
