This year we revisited the cave for two reasons: firstly we chose it as a site to film at with BBC’s Coast programme, to talk about Neanderthal archaeology and ice age landscapes, we also wanted to begin a proper, modern condition survey of the site. The logistics of getting camera and survey equipment to the site caused a lot of thinking, access to the site is by a footpath of sorts but close to a fairly steep drop and across uneven ground. We were lucky to have the reassuring presence of Jersey Rock Climbing Club to assist us and advise on the safety of the path.
But to explore the cave we now don’t need to make revisits. Dr Sarah Duffy was with us with a 35mm SLR and undertook a first stage photogrammetry survey. Thanks to her magic capturing the interior of the cave, you can explore it too:
