Hungerhill Swallet, Timbered Shaft

Access

Call at Hungerhill Farm before descending (try the new house first, then the lower house). Very limited parking, probably best to park in the village and walk up. This entrance currently run in.

Warning

Some of the squeezes in the cave are very tight and awkward, or through poised boulders. The big pitch (Deep Space) and the streamway (Peristalsis) may quickly become impassable in wet weather.
