The 2nd of 6 photos (see below) of the subsidence hole that appeared on Dover's seafront promenade on Friday, July 11th, 2008.

In this photo, the hole has been enlarged and partially shored at its western end.

The top of the statue of Charles Stewart Rolls (co-founder with Sir Henry Royce of Rolls Royce motor cars) can be seen poking above the white camper van, left of center.

Part of the brickwork of the Drop Redoubt is also visible at the very top of the photo, half left.

There are 6 photos altogether (though I may add more later), taken over a period of 5 days:

1 The hole as first seen on Friday, July 11th

2 The expanded hole and partial shoring on Monday, July 14th

3 Interior of the hole on Tuesday, July 15th

4 The hole looking West on Tuesday, July 15th

5 The hole looking East on Tuesday, July 15th

6 Wide-angle view of the hole on Tuesday, July 15th

These photos are also indexed under the "Holes" tag.

Photos 1 and 2 were taken using my Samsung G800 5 Mpx camera phone, the others with a Pentax K100D DSLR.

The Statue (Bust) of Captain Matthew Webb, first recorded English Channel Swimmer, is out of shot to the right in front of the Gateway Flats at top-right in the above photo.
