Elephant Hole Cave, Niton Undercliff
This is a natural cave in the cliff face, connected what by what must be a man-made tunnel to another entrance. The area is extremely dark thanks to overhanging vegetation, especially at this time of year, and the carpet of ferns and thick ivy conceals very hazardous cracks and holes. Nonetheless, I actually managed to get through to the cave a couple of weeks ago without breaking a leg ... didn't find any of the bats that are said to inhabit it, but they probably saw me. Oil on board, 12" by 16".
