It is noted for being rather steep, with a length of 78 metres (256 ft) and a depth of 42 metres (138 ft).
The cave was first discovered by schoolboys from the nearby Sidcot School in mid-1947, where they noticed the presence of "bone, flints, and pottery" which was later the site of archeological investigation, and multiple attempts to dig out the cave from 1985 to 1995 which turned up with minimal results.
