From Guy Cox’s Cave Science 51: “... the main cave was explored by the Nottingham expedition of 1964. The 1970 NUCC expedition explored some further passages and surveyed the system. The major part of the cave consists of a single stream passage; a series of chambers is encountered before the terminal sump.”
Tony Jarratt’s caving log records two discoveries in the cave, on 31 Jul 1970 and 9 Aug 1970.
