That is dangerous
Look at this idiot on an unstable part of the ground which has already dropped a couple of feet
That extra weight could dislodge it even further, 40m down

One wonders if it might be linked to 'fracking' in the area, i.e. if they have done any so far. It is one of the more 'desolate' areas I suppose, as opposed to the desolate areas of the North East!

The area is riddled with mines and caverns.

The web link itself says:

Quote:
The hole, believed to be about 160ft (49m) wide and 130ft (40m) deep, was caused by mining in the area, according to landowner British Fluorspar.
