Location

Grid Reference: SD 774 755

Altitude: 343 m

Fairly obvious open hole, surrounded by trees and a wall.

Description

Two routes are available for descent of the main shaft:

North West route
From the trees a couple of rebelays gains access to a fine 60m pitch to land close to the last pitch.

South East route
The trees again provide an initial anchor, followed by a 30m pitch to land on the ledge running from the bottom of The Bridge. A further short pitch lands near the waterfall, from where a descent can be made to the last pitch.

The short last pitch is descended into a large passage, this is followed down a climb and past the Diccan Pot waterfall to the sump.

A couple of exchange trips are possible when combined with Diccan Pot and Lower Long Churn

Access

Call at Selside Farm, where a small fee is payable.
