Good to see you're *rising* to the challenge Trogger. This Kingsdale hole is obscure but has significant potential.

Is there a "Horizontal Pot"?

If there isn't, there should be. Sorry, can't mark you up for that one Roger.

My guess - based, likewise, on not knowing if it actually exists - is Horizontal Pot?

Quelle surprise - I've been "a page behind" since school days! Now let me have a look at the latest clue!

Actually Jason, I thought that it was a good clue (though I didn't get it).

The entrance to Robinson's Pot must be unique, inasmuch as it is in the yard outside a farmhouse, up against the kitchen wall, such that as you descend the short entrance pitch you actually go underneath the kitchen.

It's a privilege to be able to go down there, really – thanks to the family there for allowing access.

Thanks. Here's another -

This is no place to set up camp. You might end up in Cowan Bridge if it rains! ( 11, 8 )

Apparently it's Robinsons' Pot (not "Robinson's"). This cropped up a while ago so I checked with one of the original 1975 (re)explorers and there was more than one Robinson.

Another clue - this is a well known location in a very popular cave. It's considerable stream drains to Leck Beck Head.
