A deep entrance pitch leads to a roomy and impressive chamber. Below, several routes unite at Aldermaston Chamber, which contains two deep pools and an underwater streamway, part of a conduit draining the Rowberrow area to Banwell Spring. Although it lies in an area of intense mining activity, the cave is entirely natural. Mangle Hole is another site that has been suggested as a candidate for the lost Gulf.
Alternate Names: SMCC-13, ACG-11
Notes: The cave is very muddy throughout and there are indications that the lowest levels of the cave may flood to a height of 7m. There are many jammed boulders which demand great respect.
