A good source of information about coal mines

If you are looking for a good source of information about mines, and not just coal mines we would recommend a visit to the website of the Northern Mine Research Society, click here for a link to their website.

They have a good section on Coal Mines which can be found above. The Coal Authority also has a useful interactive map

It aims to provide information on the following:

  • finding out if a property is affected by coal mining
  • checking if your site is in a high-risk area
  • checking for coal and mine entries on or near the surface


However, it gives a useful indication of where mine were and areas which have been worked
