A walking friend alerted me to this little cave / shelter, i'd never heard of it.

His directions are as follows.

If you go to Canklow woods, there is a cave there (SK432907), marked as a settlement on os map. It's only tiny, but urban legend say's it's neolithic... (it'd be nice to know if this was true)

If you've not been it's a nice walk if you've only got an hour,

Park at mcD's and walk past the garage.

Just before the houses there is a dirt track. Go up hill, heading for Boston castle.

When at the top, follow path through park, following edge (Past cave).

Drop down the opposite end through the woods (Terraced - this was an ancient farming site) and back along the bottom.
