Details of Sow's Hole rock shelter on Pastscape

A rock shelter located at the foot of the cliff on the southern side of Cheddar Gorge. It is one of two, the other known as Pig's Hole (ST 45 SE 2). There has been uncertainty in the past as to which is which. It has been decided, rather arbitrarily, that the smaller of the two, located at ST 47845455 should be known as Sow's Hole. Excavations in 1930 apparently recovered Iron Age potsherds.
