Mendip colleagues - just bear in mind the rockfalls we've had in the Dales, on several occasions over the years, immediately following earthquakes. Take care in those boulder ruckles.

Didn't notice it at the Hunters'. Seems to have mostly affected the Levels. But still worth keeping an eye on things...

If you felt Thursday evening's earthquake in Bridgwater, Somerset, you might like fill out the BGS felt report questionnaire. Felt reports provide seismologists with very useful information:

They use the results to study the effects of earthquakes by inviting people to record what they experienced.

Still " gassy " as far as I know Mike. I want to go back before winter sets in to get my ladders out. No digging in there this year at all.
