Earthquakes in Britain

With British earthquakes in the news again, I refer the interested reader to three earlier postings on this blog:
A piece by Ian Sample in today's Guardian looks at the fault lines along which they may occur:
The most famous fault line, the Great Glen fault, runs along the length of the Great Glen from south-west to north-east Scotland, cutting through Loch Ness. Another is the Church Stretton fault line in Shropshire.
I must admit I was disappointed that the epicentre of this week's quake was not under the Stiperstones. A couple of recent quakes have been centred there and it would have been handy for Calder's Comfort Farm.
