Report Date30/12/2013.

Sometime around Christmas day a massive hole appeared in a field near Foolow. On Tuesday 31st small movements were still being observed. It is approximately 45m across and around 20m deep, with the likely cause being the collapse of an old mine working. Either that or badgers. They get the blame for everything.

Looking south towards Foolow.
