Abstract: Bos Swallet was first explored by boys from the nearby Sidcot School in the 1940's. It was subsequently extended by digging by members of this Society from 1994 to 1996. It is considered to have been formed in parallel to the nearby swallet caves of Rod's Pot and Drunkard's Hole. It may have been an active stream sink until as late as the 18th century.
