Monument record MDR11695 - Small cave, Poulter Country Park, Scarcliffe

Type and Period (1)

  • (Unknown date)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

Landscaping in Poulter Country Park resulted in the creation of an L-shaped rock face up to 4m high containing a small cave. This has an entrance 0.7m in diameter and extends back for 1.5m before it is blocked by a deposit of coarse scree-sized rocks in a matrix of red sandy material. As this had been exposed by modern excavation, it is not clear if this cave originally opened to the surface. (1)
