More information : An adit is depicted on the eastern side of Drybridge combe by source 1a. Centred at SS 7591 3856 on the eastern side of Drybridge Combe, the adit consists of a rock-cut opening 1.5m wide and 1.5m high and facing east. The opening gives access to a tunnel which contains water and is therefore inaccessible. Its extent and dimensions were not ascertained. To the west of the opening is a gulley 2.7m deep, which may be partly natural in origin, but has been deepened to facilitate access to the adit. The remains of a spoil dump extend down the step natural slopes to the west.
