The 10 inch wide hole is getting deeper and the risk of collapse from erosion of the substrate is increasing. The defect is c. 500 metres south of Stainswick farm and c. 100m south of the bridleway junction with the B4000. There is a short stretch of the B4000 which has been resurfaced with a smoother surfaced asphalt. The hole is 5-10 metres north of the short resurfaced section.
