Forest Hill, London SE23: The famous sinkhole + Havelock Walk Open Studios

The sinkhole on 5th November 2016

A sinkhole is for Christmas ......... on Friday 4th November 2016 at the start of Perry Vale in Forest Hill in South London started to entertain its third sinkhole of 2016. The two previous were on the nearby railway line into London Bridge. As these photos taken today (27th November) show work to repair this sinkhole, which is now one of the most popular Forest Hill tourist sights, there is little sign that the repairs will be finished anytime soon.

There has been some comment and comparison with a large sinkhole in Japan that that occurred around the same time but was very rapidly repaired – see here.

Will our SE23 sinkhole see in the New Year?
