The Earthquake


THE earthquake was felt by an invalid in bed at Dudbridge, a mile south-west of Stroud, Gloucestershire. The house stands on the Middle Lias. It was also felt at Stonehouse, three miles west of Stroud on the Lower Lias. The New Red dips under the Lias, about seven miles west of Stonehouse, at the well-known section at Westbury-on-Severn. It is presumed that the Carboniferous Limestone exists under the New Red. It is visible three miles to the west of Westbury.
