A Whole Lot of Shaking Going On

Our newest exhibition was formally unveiled today, marking the fact that Rutland is currently bidding to be the earthquake centre of the UK. Thanks to the generosity of the Leicester Literary and Philosophical Society and with the help and advice of the University of Leicester and the British Geological Survey we have a working seismometer together with a screen to display earth movements as they happen. We also have a Jump Pad, where you can be your own earthquake.
It’s seen here being given some testing prior to its official opening.
