Earthquake in Looe
Earthquake At Half Past Midnight
On 27th May 1782 - Looe
I felt the shock of an earthquake, it was accompanied by a noise like distant thunder,
I was struck by the idea how such distant thunder should shake my bed candlestick.
.... On coming downstairs next morning, I said to my servant that I believed
there was an earthquake last night. The answer was that many people of the town
were speaking of it.
I afterwards heard it was felt in Liskeard.”
Recorded by the Reverend Milles of Looe.
