Cave only goes in about 15m, then it shallows to nothing. Thinks its just a drain run off from up the hill.

Scary when I was 7yr old though!!

Yeah went into it for an explore, and it was impressive - a few different routes but all to a dead end - wanted to know more about the history of it if anyone knew, drain run off is a little boring....

Apparently its still scary now, especially when your right at the end and you turn the torch off then make scary noises...

We didn't make it out, watched the rugby! And as my wife is an Aussie I felt like not doing much after that!
