Surrey mines

The Wealden Cave & Mine Society has an interest in the long-abandoned underground workings of the South East, in particular the firestone quarries and sand mines of East Surrey. We are actively engaged in the study of their history, geology, archaeology, natural history, conservation and how they form an integral part of the local environment.

Long-abandoned underground quarry workings in Surrey.

Some members undertake research work in the ancient workings, and publish the results. We run regular visits into these sites, and encourage new members to come along and get involved.
