Ripon Is “Sinkhole Capital Of The UK” And Channel 5 Are Making A Documentary About It


A new three-part documentary series is set to be filmed in Ripon later this year.

The Assistant Producer, Rory Fong of the upcoming show told the Harrogate Advertiser;

“The main premise of the series is collecting a lot of archive news footage about sinkholes from across the UK. “There is a lot of brilliant archive footage of the sinkholes happening and the aftermath.

“We will have interviews with top geologists from the British Geological Survey to give us a real expert overview of the causes of sinkholes.

“I was in Ripon on Monday and Tuesday to scout out the area and do some research. It was a good start to the project, and I have already talked to some residents who seemed positive about it. We will be filming in August.”
