Seeking lunch and a sink hole

We went out into a wet Wednesday to bus to Caswell Bay and walk a bit to Bishopston for lunch at the home of Swansea Brewing Company, the Joiners. It started raining again as we approached the pub, and as we ordered it turned to stair rods of rain. So we had more beer. The rain eased at 2pm so we left, seeking the church beside a stream. Just beyond the church said stream plunges into a hole in the Carboniferous limestone, and flows underground for a kilometre. I was there for the sinkhole.

But stair rods of rain changed things. The normally small clear stream had become a torrent of brown water making it impossible to walk down beside it to the sinkhole.

Worse than that, said hole had collapsed sometime earlier and caused the footpath to be closed – ground surface unstable. Here are some pictures without a sinkhole.
