This earthquake was felt over a very wide area of N France
and S England. In England it was perceptible from Penzance to London, and one
isolated report comes from as far north as near Worcester. In France the
eastern limit was Paris, but the western limit is uncertain. Slight damage is
reported from both sides of the Channel - at Cherbourg and Lisieux in France
and at Portsmouth in England. The shock was quite strong in the Channel
Islands. The epicentre was probably just off the N coast of France, between
Cherbourg and Caen.
