Lifespan wise shes probobly got a life expectancy of 25-30 years... those are roughtly what most sttructured these days have... so i can see nemmie being there for a long while yet... she still draws a big crowd after all. last time i went we saw them queueing up down the side of the first drop. i dunon about anyone else but i find it hard to tell whats badly looked after and whats themeing...

About the cost of filling in the hole, AT would get payed to fill in the hole not the other way around. We know a bloke who needed his land to be raised by 1 meter so he got builders to pay him so that they could dump there earth on his land.
Good way to make some money.
