A specialist site investigation company who visited the Recreation Ground on Tuesday say a sink hole there requires further investigation.
They say there initial view is it was possible, given the shape of the hole, that it is the site of an old well.
A more technical team will be out on Friday morning to see if this is the case and to discuss a course of action.
The Parish Council strongly advises people to steer clear of the area until further notice
The Parish Council closed access to the Recreation Ground – including the play areas – on Tuesday after being informed by members of the public had formed on one part of the ground on Monday evening.
The specialist team from Epping was asked to look into the significance of the hole, which measures about 45cm wide and 30cm deep and is located near a football goal on the Rec.
The hole has now been temporarily filled with sand.
This Public Open Space will remain closed for public use until it is declared safe.
