Britain’s biggest natural hole!

Hull Pot
Hull Pot

We are just back from our first ever long weekend of guided walks in the Yorkshire Dales.  Our aim was to climb the three highest mountains in Yorkshire over three consecutive days, taking it slowly to allow time to enjoy the views and look at points of interest along the route.

Yesterday following our descent from Pen-y-Ghent, we passed Hull Pot.  A collapsed cave which now forms a hole in the ground approx 60 feet wide, 60 feet deep and 300 feet long.  It is rumoured to be Britain’s biggest natural hole.  A stream enters the hole part way down creating a small waterfall and I believe that after prolonged heavy rain it cascades over the rim of the hole from the top as a much more impressive waterfall.
