A rock shelter containing Beaker-associated material was excavated in 1931 by HE Balch. The finds are in Wells Museum.

Finds included a skeleton and the remains of three other individuals, associated with a large Beaker sherd and a floor of limestone flagstones. The sherd and bones are in Wookey Hole Museum.
