This fine, partially fossil resurgence cave is famous both as a show cave and as one of the richest Palaeolithic sites in the country.
It contains some notable decorated chambers, including St. Paul's, Diamond Chamber and King Solomon's Temple, a network of dry passages and roomy chambers beyond the show cave, and a lengthy section of the underwater River Yeo. Known feeders include Attborough Swallet, Bowery Corner Swallet, Charterhouse Cave, G.B. Cave, Longwood Swallet, Manor Farm Swallet, Pinetree Pot, Upper Flood Swallet and Wigmore Swallet. The stream passage can be followed downstream to a section too tight to pass, which lies quite close to Cheddar Risings, the largest resurgence on Mendip.
