Default UK Earthquake 10.58am

I'm sure we just had a small earthquake. North west England.

Earthquakes around the British Isles in the last 50 days

Didn't feel a thing in Blackburn, but then it is Sunday morning and I am half asleep.

Quite a lot of activity mooly, but all very low level. Hopefully it stays that way!

Wonder if anyone thinks about earthquakes when they drive through that Channel tunnel.

What is that-20 miles long?

The UK is surprisingly active when you look, but fortunately at a low level mostly. I guess if there were a fault line through the channel tunnels path then that could be interesting but I think its all chalk under the channel (it was mentioned recently on a TV programme "Coast")

This show the more significant ones but the dates are puzzling as they go back to the 1300's

Significant British Earthquakes

Reason I remember this is because before the tunnel was built an American news features show ran this lengthy piece on the protests against the tunnel. The people in the area were dead set against it, which I found curious because in America politicians fight tooth and nail to get projects built in their districts for the jobs.

A spokeswoman for one of the protest groups said that there was an earthquake in the area in the 1300s and that was one of the reasons they opposed it, (along with a long list of other things).

The TV showed the protestors as somewhat silly, I don't know if that is accurate or not.

Anyhow your link shows the 1300s earthquake, but also mild earthquakes in nearby Dover in the 1500s, Normandy, (near Calais, the French outlet), in the 1800s and even at the British outlet in Folkestone in 2007. So maybe the lady wasn't all that loony after all.

Apparently the quakes were nothing huge, but when you mentioned British earthquakes that old TV show just popped up in my mind.

But with four thousand holes, it is like a squidgy sponge.
