The hole of Horcum is 400 feet deep and 3/4 of a mile across, it has been erroded by springs over thousands of years The Hole of Horcum is a vast, 400ft deep natural hollow measuring ¾ of a mile across.<br>It has been naturally eroded over thousands of years by the action of springs, though a more romantic<br>legend tells us that it was created when a giant named Wade, who was in fact a Saxon chief,<br>grabbed a ‘handful’ of earth to throw at his wife, Bell – the soil missed its target and landed to form <br>the 800ft high hill of Blakey Topping which lies about a mile to the east <br> On the North Yorkshire Moors

Taken with a Canon 40d and a Sigma 10-20 mm lens.Processed in Photomatix
