This site is intended as a journey around the mining sites of Great Britain where any form of significant remains / major industrial archaeology can be seen. The site is intended to act as a photographic record showing mainly the surface mining remains such as engine houses, structures and buildings etc from the coal, metal and stone extractive industries. I hope to provide new and even established mine explorers, historians or even just the mildly interested with a photographic overview of what can be found. The sitewill always be a work in progress so please bear with me as I up load more material. The mines are arranged on a regional basis so simply scroll through the menu until you find the region you want.
