Abstract This report is the published product of a study by the British Geological Survey (BGS) into the effects of the 27 February 2008 Market Rasen (or Lincoln) earthquake, magnitude 5.2 ML, 4.5 Mw. In contrast to former BGS practice (since 1974), in the last few years macroseismic data (i.e. reports on earthquake effects) have been collected over the internet through a page on the BGS web site ( Formerly, questionnaires were published in local newspapers, and the task of sifting and interpreting the replies was immense. Data of this sort is also gathered routinely by USGS as part of their 'Did You Feel It?' programme, and also by EMSC. Data from all three agencies, plus data from local agencies in Belgium and Ireland, have been merged in this study.
