UK village is rising up, and nobody knows why

Still Waters

A quaint, historic village in the south of England is steadily rising up out of the ground, and scientists are at a loss to explain what's causing the phenomenon.

The quiet parish of Willand in Devon has a steady population of some 6,000 inhabitants, but the ground the town is built upon isn't quite so stable – with scientists discovering its landscape is experiencing some of the fastest-rising uplift seen across the entire UK.

While the researchers don't think the phenomenon is dangerous, they do say it's imperative scientists confirm what's actually happening here, because the cause may not ultimately be benign.

 

I knew there was a terrifying part to this story.

The interactive map is very accurate! It highlights a raised area near here, where the surrounding area has been levelled for the road to go through.

just kidding. This seems to be a great resource, to detect changes even that subtle.

Maybe the village is not rising at all but the land around it is sinking. ;)

I thought it was like...everyone in the whole village was rising up together about some cause or something.

No...the actual ground is rising.
