National Trust waiting for South West Water and highways experts to examine subsidence at Mortehoe
A hole which opened up beside the road at Mortehoe is waiting to be investigated.
Lead ranger Jonathan Fairhurst said the hole on the edge of National Trust land at Chapel Hill appeared to be a collapsed underground water chamber, not a sink hole as first thought.
“The road is stable and there’s no evidence of any damage to it, although highways have been informed,” he said.
He said South West Water would be examining it to work out what it is and who it belongs to.
