I think the warning signs around the site say it all :shock: .

Sorry about some of the photos being a bit poor, it was the end of the day with very low cloud and rain.

Yes, a place I've been wanting to get to for some time.

We walked to it from Hanbury, and then did a lap of the crater.

It is a huge hole in the ground, the light coloured shapes in the bottom right of the last photo are huge blocks of gypsum.

Don't worry about the quality of the photos! They're excellent at the side of the ones I took! :?

Must agree, the size of the crater is overwhelming and any photography really doesn't capture the scale of the palce ~Haven't been there for a while but does the pub in Hanbury still have press cuttings etc. on the walls? Also remember it used to sell a particularly well kept ale :D
