SJ 190 655

Make your way to the sewage works at Cilcain and park in the woodland recess just before the road terminates. Walk directly up the hill through the trees fro around 100feet and you will find a large spoil mound. Turn left to follow the fence line (heading to Valentine shaft (the upper entrance to Ogof Nadolig). The shaft is on the right, hidden in the trees close to but BEFORE Valentine shaft on the same lateral.

Un-gated. Permission requirement unknown

Suggested Equipment
Full SRT. Unknown rope length.


Flood risk

Shaft Attributes
A small shaft, probably an old vent shaft.

A small and possibly awkward shaft leading down, possibly, 100 feet (this is a guess but based on what is known about the topography of the area).

This remains completely unexplored and, as it is small, it may be blocked at the bottom.

However, it is also likely that it meets the adit located within the bottom series of Ogof Nadolig which is currently blocked.

Unexplored Passages
It is entirely unexplored


None known
