The Coal Authority holds coal mining data in a national database. This provides information on past and present coal mining.

The Interactive Map Viewer and the Web Mapping Services are provided free of charge.

More information about accessing coal mining abandonment plans, photographs, licensing information, property deeds and documents.

Coal Authority interactive map viewer

The Coal Authority interactive map viewer allows you to view selected coal mining information in your browser graphically.

Reasons to use this information include:

  • 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

To check a particular location either enter a post code or use your mouse to zoom in to view the surrounding area.

Turning on selected data layers will let you see various coal mining data on top of the map. Clicking on any data points or areas will provide some further detailed information.

Terms and conditions of use are provided on the splash screen on the interactive map viewer. These were amended in March 2018
