steviet_scg has it – Long Kin West . . . do you see what I mean? It doesn't look like a 100-m shaft.
It really doesn't (great photo tho) bit of a random guess really from the clues.

I'll post a photo when I get chance but if anyone wants to jump in feel free.

Last time I saw anything like that was when the legendary, and seldom encountered Stafford Speleos pirated Lancaster Hole back in the 90s.

Slit pot?
Apologies for my tardiness in responding, Slit Pot it is indeed!
As for explanation I am led to believe it was some kind of climbing style pull through involving the tying together of a 40 and a 30m rope (I'm not a climber and don't really understand it). But this then started to twist as it got rather energetically pulled through, eventually providing us with this delightful pseudo daisy chain effect!
