Paul Miller, chairman of the Ilkeston and District History Society, said he was "gobsmacked" at the hole's high ranking. A Natwest spokesperson told the media that the hole had been introduced during a mid-1990 renovation as a safety feature so people using the cash machine could see if anyone was hiding behind the wall. It has an average rating of 4.5 out of five and has been described as one of the architectural masterpiece that draws a wide amount of visitors from near and far.
