Mining Plans Portal mining wheels image

The Mining Plans Portal is a partnership of public sector bodies who have come together to make information about the extent of historic underground mining of non-coal minerals in Britain more accessible.

The aim of this website is to make information about underground mining records available directly, as well as to guide you to organisations that will be able to provide more detailed information when you need it.

This is not a comprehensive catalogue, but represents the information currently available in our databases. Collection of information is ongoing and updates are carried out intermittently.

See the 'search our database' page to find out where records are held.

Contact the Coal Authority for information on coal mining.
