The Hole of Horcum

The Hole of Horcum is a 400ft deep natural amphitheatre that was carved out of the rock of the North Yorkshire Moors by the action of glacial ice flows and measures of a mile across.
It has also been eroded over thousands of years by the action of springs,
although legend has it that it was created when a giant named Wade, who was in fact a Saxon chief,
grabbed a 'handful' of earth to throw at his wife, Bell - the soil missed its target
and landed to form the 800ft high hill of Blakey Topping which lies about a mile to the east
