Online Mapping of NMRS Colliery Database

By September 30, 20132013

We have just made available the NMRS database of some 23,000 Collieries in the British Isles as an overlay on Google Maps & Earth. Clicking on a marker pin will reveal more information about that colliery including, its name (the name is already displayed on the Google Earth version), when it opened & closed and what companies worked it. England, Scotland & Wales are now complete and Ireland is due soon.

We are proud to make this valuable tool freely available to anyone interested in coal mining history.

A similar database of non ferrous mines is in preparation.
