Chalk workings found 8ft below present (1969) ground surface at the bottom of a pipe trench.
This could not be visited by NCM staff before backfilling but it apparently represented the junction of two shafts.
Two pieces of antler were found 'on a shelf' in the tunnel wall.
Possibly picks - W .F. Milligan (NCM) in 1977 though this dubious.
See file NCM.
