|Description ||A view of the cave opening, with hole to wider fissure beyond. Speaking with a Brummie chap who's been coming to the area for some time, and my having left the area, his description of the cave I found didn't match. However, even the Trent & Peak Archaeological Trust couldn't agree on which cave here was the lynx cave in notes on the NMR - so it appears uncertainty is the name of the game.|
| Hey up Tim, St Bertram's cave is about 30ft to the right of this cave at the same level, although classed as part of St Bertrams the entrance you have photographed is a blind tube of about 20/30m. The cave to the right, its entrance looks like a fissure in the rock, is a much more accessible place with lots of tunnel to explore. It's possible to come out in Jackdaws Cave (St Bertram's Chimney) at the same altitude as the Hayloft (the obvious crescent shaped rift in the tor, about 100ft above St Bertram's). The Lynx Cave is accessible (not easily) via a very steep gulley maybe 50ft downstream of St Bertram's, possibly 75ft above river bed.|
