May 11, 2012: Hole of Horcum

“The Hole of Horcum is a section of the valley of the Levisham Beck, upstream of Levisham and Lockton, in the Tabular Hills of the North York Moors of northern England. The hollow is 400ft deep and stretches 3/4 of a mile across. A “Devil’s Punchbowl” type feature, local legend has it that the amphitheatre was made by a giant, who scooped up a large ball of earth and tossed it aside to create a nearby hill, Blakey Topping.” (from Wikipedia)
