Small pot-like entrance drops down 1.5 m through peat and rocks under a low rock arch into a small pool chamber leading to a low flat-out crawl. The pool is 2 m wide and 0.5 m deep sloping down to the left of the entrance with no obvious way on downstream. Across the shallower section of pond by the entrance, a trickle of stream enters from the right . A tight bend after 5 metres enters a wider and stooping-sized phreatic tube (becoming a canal) through clean and well polished banded limestone. Partial blockage by a large collapsed block 25m in has so far prevented further exploration, although the passage of decent size can be seen to continue onwards and out of sight in the direction of Ossicular Hole, which could potentially be accessed by cavers of smaller dimensions.

Alternate Names: None recorded.

Notes: Discovered October 2017.

It is possible that the downstream pool discharges through flooded passage into the two small slots/digs tentatively named Aquidneck and Soggy Bottom before emerging at Little Rock Rising.
