Also known as Slaughterhouse Drain. An entrance
down a short drop through boulders at the foot of the scar in the
true right bank of the gill a few metres downstream from COUNTY
POT. It was opened up before County Pot
but proved unstable and flood prone.
Below the entrance boulders a low crawl
gradually enlarges where a trench cuts down in the floor, and a
meandering passage can be followed to a 6m pitch just upstream of the
pitch in COUNTY
or an oxbow on the left can be
followed to an awkward climb down immediately above the pitch. The
passage beyond used to connect at the roof passage above the 1st Pitch
in County Pot.
