Jamaican Caving Notes
Wallingford Collapse Cave
May 11, 2005
Team: Stewart, Conolley, Slack
Notes: RS Stewart
This cave is a small, dry, fossil stream passage choked after 12 metres. The entrance is quite small, a little over a metre, and hidden in a patch of weeds beside the driveway to a house. The GPS position we obtained was quite good, and the coordinates given above will get you to within a few metres of the entrance.
There are no bats, and nothing living here except a few Eleuths. Breccia is present, as it is at most of the other Wallingford caves. The site was investigated by Dr DA McFarlane, in 1985, in his studies of Quaternary vertebrates in Jamaica. There is nothing else notable about it.
We are listing this cave with a low vulnerability due to the lack of visitation.
