Fell Oct. 13, 1914 - LL6 Chondrite
The Appley Bridge meteorite fell around 8:45 on the evening of October 13, 1914. Thunderous detonations shook homes and tremendous light was cast on the ground. Spawned by recent conflict with Germany, many were frightened and assumed the luminous body and explosions were a German airship.
On the day after the event, an unusual stone was found embedded in the ground on the property of Halliwell Farm. The 33 pound stone was covered in a burnt powder with an interior of light grey and spots of gold and metal. It was subsequently confirmed as a meteorite, dispelling any theories or fear of a German airship.
