Noises in East of England

Last evening at around 1650hrs local a very intrusive reverborating sound was heard travelling north. It has been the subject of much speculation today in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire (only local BBC stations I can receive) and so far no answers from anyone. Definitely medium level so should be painted on someone's radar I think. Any offers anyone please?

Probably a bad bearing. Is it still under warranty?

Norm, could just be that BGS are slow in updating their database, or that the pigeons have stopped off on their way from Thorne to Edinburgh. Recent UK earthquake activity is at:
Recent Earthquakes

... and that report was from yesterday at 14:30, so maybe . . .

Aahh !!! They DO make quite a lot of noise, but you don't hear it
because it's so far down.
All the old Pits are in a right state by now I think.
Don't get the same with open cast mining, hopefully.

Mushy pea s CAN have a similar effect.

Thorne Colliery was closed in the '80's after a failed attempt
to re-open it by British Coal. The demand wasn't there for the coal.

Not when the Power Stations are allowed to import cheap coal from furrin mines who use Slave Labour.

There is some sense in NOT digging up our own coal.
This place of ours is floating on about 400yrs supply of coal.
Dig it all out and we would be swimming, or even worse, Ffrench!!!

Digressing a little from't thread, but wi' regards t' coil we ampt duggaht, might it be that in fact it is a good strategic reserve for when everything else is used up, and technolology has advanced, that we will be able to make everything we need from't coil! (If only! )
