Sandford Hill, Sandford.
|NGR:||ST 4294 5889|
A partially natural mine explored by ACG in 1972. A vertical pit leads to a steep rift, where a wriggle over a choke gains access to a short section of natural cave. The NGR quoted in the original ACG report is incorrect, which may have contributed to the same site later being 'rediscovered' and christened Little Wood Mine. The entrance is currently blocked with a pile of boulders (2014).
Alternate Names: Little Wood Mine
