The monument consists of a cave containing archaeological deposits that can date from as early as the Palaeolithic period. A cave may have been used for occupation, storage, burial, refuse, or as a temporary shelter.
The entrance to this limestone cave faces to the north west and is 3m high and 3.4m wide. The cave extends for at least 9m from the entrance. The cave is unexcavated, however, surface finds have included a Palaeolithic flint blade and four flint waste flakes.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric settlement, ritual and funerary practices. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
