A 30m pitch to a short streamway, sumped at both ends. Upstream, a bypass yielded a roomy chamber and another sump. There were several roomy avens, one of which is believed to have been Spectacles Hole. The stream is believed to be a continuation of Balch Cave stream series (Conning Tower Cave). Discovered by quarrying, in 1963, it was named after the quarry foreman. The upper section has since been destroyed, with the remainder blocked.
Alternate Names: Fairy Cave 8, Easter Hole, Tupman's Hole
Notes: Discovered by quarrying, April 1963. Partially destroyed and blocked.
