Caton karst sinkhole
In south-west England in February 2014, a sinkhole formed adjacent to the slip road off the northbound carriageway of the A38 at Caton, Devon. This event, which was significant in terms of its size and potential impact, was not brought to the attention of the BGS until April 2016. This coincided with a project defining karst domains across the UK, and therefore a responsive visit was made to provide additional project information.
