    • During the 1870/8 excavation Tiddeman excavated a trench around the eastern side of the central block (UtU 311) and was able to connect chambers A/D to B. UtU 307 is that connection point, it cuts through a series of flowstone floors which are exposed in the north-east/south-west section edges of this trench. One of the floors is still forming in the adjacent passage UtU 308. This was allocated VA 10 in LUAU 1995 survey (Quartermaine, J. 1995. Victoria and Albert Caves North Yorkshire: Archaeological Survey. Lancaster University Archaeological Unit. Lancaster)
