Winnats Head Cave

Entrance of Winnats Head Cave


Call on Mr.Bradley at Winnats Head Farm. Small charge for parking and changing facilities. Parking prohibited on roadside verges, with risk of fines. Beware of highly unstable boulder chokes & heed any warning notices posted on state of cave.


Both boulder chokes, below the Main Chamber and below Fox Chamber, are very dangerous, and rescue from beyond would be almost impossible.
