Hello.....used to walk past there many times years ago-its very near trig point.
In the 70`s there were still bricks, mortar and wallpaper!!
Look on 40`s map ( on `old maps` website) for exact location.

Hello....
just looked again re info`...on map 10 minutes ago!!
look at:`Ordnance Survey Maps Six Inch England and Wales 1842 to 1952`
(National Library of Scotland)..go to `As Individual Sheets using a zoomable map of England and Wales`.....use the zoomable map to look at South Yorkshire/Hallamshire....there are 8 maps....Cave House is not on the 1894
publication, but appears on the 1924....not on the 1934....it was abandoned around 1932....bits of plaster, bricks and doors were there in 1970 and up to 1983ish...so was I!! Probably no evidence by now..another 35 years on...
