Ladybower Bell-mouth by stevet201

Ladybower Bell-mouth

Known locally as the plughole this is a bell-mouth overspill on Ladybower Reservoir. To give a sense of scale the bell-mouth is 80ft (24m) in diameter.
Scary... like Charybdis

Oh yes - just looked that up and Charybdis is estimated at 75 feet - big enough to swallow a Greek ship. Fortunately there are not too many of those in the Peak District! I would rate anyone's chances of surviving a fall into this.

no edit on a comment - I meant I would NOT rate anyone's chances....
