During logging operations, a forestry tractor wheel broke into the rift, unfortunately, due to its location in the track, the hole had to be quickly surveyed and filled in. Whilst surveying, a farmer informed us of another hole that had opened up some years previously. It was 50m further along the track, along the same fault line and had been much larger. It was filled in at the time of discovery and sadly, no records were taken however this area could repay more attention and reveal its secrets. It is obviously much larger
