Tremor wakes Hebden Bridge

Earth tremor in Pecket Well, approx 1am.

Serious enough to shake a candle out of its holder.

Rob next door said “it definitely felt like it came up from the ground. I immediately went outside to see if the top of the building was still there!”

Anyone else feel anything??

Wind is severe up here, but this was not the wind.

Hello all!

Did anyone else feel an earthquake hit Hebden? I cant get back to sleep now it was so loud, the whole of my bed shook and things fell from shelves!

Very odd, I hope the chimneys around us are all stable!
