A 17m deep shaft which led via a small chamber and muddy slide to a loose, tight streamway, which ended in boulders. From an aven above, a faint aural connection was made with the main chamber of Fernhill Cave. The streamway was believed to be a continuation of the water last seen in Plummer's Hole.
