Earthquakes in England

Just out of curiousity...how common are earthquakes in Great Britain? How large are they usually? When was the last "big one" and how much damage did it cause?

Any help would be appreciated.

Googling showed that there were a lot of large ones centuries ago, but the most recent story I came across was this one which makes it sound like the largest quake lately was only about a 4.8 in Manchester in 2002. Has there been something bigger in the past few centuries? How about something more recent?

Thanks!
