A minor earthquake at Calverley, Leeds, on July 27 2019.

The recent UK Earthquakes section in the British Geological Survey website reports that an earthquake was detected at Calverley, Leeds, on July 27 2019. It occurred at 01:04 BST at a depth of 12km and magnitude 1.6. Though very minor in World terms it was a highish magnitude for UK earthquakes. I wonder if anyone felt it? The map below (derived from the Google map brought up in the BGS website) shows the location of the earthquake.

I edited this post a little while after posting as I discovered that my home address could be easily found from the Google map I had used from the BGS website!!
