Park in the car park at the rear of the castle. In the far corner of the car park (furthermost away from the castle on the left) is a public footpath; follow this down into the woods. It crosses a road and continues. The path bends sharply and here you should carry straight on in the undergrowth towards a limestone wall.
There is an entrance at the side as well as an entrance above.
It is very close to “Goblin Tower” (and, yes, it is actually called that)
Not gated, no known permissions required
50 feet maximum
Now dry, it appears to have been phreatic in nature. Few decorations.
Side entrance appears to resemble a fracture of the rock face as though the front was coming away but clearly water has passed through. After a short distance a chamber is reached. In the bottom of the chamber are two short crawls which taper out quickly.
Above is another entrance (reachable from outside) which looks like a pair of eyes. Crawling in these “eyes” and over the top of the chamber, another passage can be crawled into but, again, it tapers out quickly.
The cave is inhabited by a large number of spiders.
Although the cave is of little interest, the chamber and passages are phreatic and logic suggests they are part of something much bigger (yet to be found?). Additionally, this cave lies on the same lateral line as Coppy Farm Caves, Plas Heaton Cave and Cefn Caves and dye tested water is known to flow from the Coppy Farm area to Cefn suggesting an existing “in use” system below.
None Known but there may be other parts to the cave now concealed by the wild growth around the area.
