In 2012 investigation of a further chamber in the southeast corner of the main chamber was initiated by I McHardy at the request of C. Coventry. The chamber, although known about for some time, was little investigated and lay behind a flowstone tallus which fills the base of a large vertical faultline in the limestone. Initial investigation in April 2012 confirmed that there was no trace of anthropomorphic activity in the area. A second inspection in Nov 2012 also found that the material which underlies the tallus was also deposited through natural processes and no evidence of human activity was found. <1>
