A glorious walk around the Hole of Horcum yesterday afternoon. At 2pm the temperature was just minus 7 celsius. Legend has it that the Hole of Horcum was formed by the giant Wade, who angry with his wife, scooped up a handful of soil and threw it at her. His finger marks can be clearly seen in the sides of the hollow. He missed fortunately and in doing so created the 800ft Blakey Topping. Others believe that it was formed as Levisham Beck cut through hard rock and revealed soft clay underneath. This clay was then moved away in the ice age!
