"Mrs and Miss Bunting, who were in the apartment, were precipitated with chairs, table, and other furniture into a funnel shaped hole, 27feet in depth." This is an excerpt from the earliest detailed account of subsidence in Norwich, dated 1853. Since then there have been occasional reports of subsidence, culminating in a series of dramatic incidents from the late 1980s which led the Department of the Environment to commission this study as part of a national review of ground instability in the UK. The illustrated report uses published and archive records to record the history of subsidence, establish the scale and causes of the problem, investigate likely subsidence hazard, and outline a strategy for responding to subsidence problems. Suitable for planners and surveyors nation-wide, it also provides local residents with an insight into what lies beneath their city.
