    • A trench excavated by Tiddeman during the 1870-8 excavations, following the abandonment of the adjacent trench UtU 312. It provided the connection between chambers A and B and was excavated in order to identify lower deposits possibly relating to an earlier interglacial. No earlier interglacial deposits were identified; the bedrock was not reached. A large clay ridge divides this trench from UtU 312. This was allocated VA12 in LUAU 1995 survey (Quartermaine, J. 1995. Victoria and Albert Caves North Yorkshire: Archaeological Survey. Lancaster University Archaeological Unit. Lancaster)
