Abstract
    The fate of the Rhine graben zone of seismicity as it extends to the North West remains a considerable unknown. From a re-evaluation of the record of British historical seismicity and evidence for recent faulting a provisional seismotectonic model is emerging that can hope to extend the understanding already achieved for the Rhine graben, through the south North Sea, and into England. Rapid and differential subsidence along the S.E. Essex coast supports a model of regional, tectonically induced, tension.
