Twiglet and I had a look at it.  There's a scramble up through undergrowth from the beach and a traverse through similar to get into the entrance.  The adit is about 500ft long with a shaft from surface which is vertical then descends on the dip of the lode and continues below the adit but is flooded.  There's no stoping, the lode looks very thin, but there are a few ochre stals and some pretty sections of copper staining
