You might be thinking of the entrance to Riano (Site 0105) where we used a cooker as part of a barricade to try and stop mud getting washing into the entrance in very wet weather and silting it up. The cooker had been dumped in the entrance shakehole.

Wasn't there a fridge door part way down the shaft to Notts II?
