    • This location at the end of the original passage which extended over the top of the central block, also coincides with the south-western end of the trench UtU 311. It is at the edge of a section of cave bedding plane that provides the roof for trench UtU 311. The area has been extensively disturbed by the 1970-8 excavations and also excavations by Tot Lord in the 1930's (III). There is nevertheless intact archaeological stratigraphy beneath the floor of the trenches at this point. This was allocated VA15 in LUAU 1995 survey (Quartermaine, J. 1995. Victoria and Albert Caves North Yorkshire: Archaeological Survey. Lancaster University Archaeological Unit. Lancaster)
