66ft-Wide Sink Hole Happens in Yorkshire

November 28, 2016 2:13 pm

The emergence of a 66ft (20m) sinkhole in Ripon, North Yorkshire earlier this month offers a stark and present reminder of the importance of undertaking ground stability due-diligence as part of the legal conveyancing process.

News reports published worrying photos of a huge hole that appeared in gardens, forcing seven homes to be evacuated.

Sinkholes are relatively common in Ripon and are usually caused by the dissolution of thick gypsum deposits beneath the area. This recent incident is close to where another sink hole opened up beneath a 100-year-old building in 2014.
