What lies beneath…?
With over 100,000 abandoned mines in the UK, plus many more early and unrecorded surface workings, there is a chance your property or development site may be in an area adversely affected by ground movement and subsidence, in addition to contamination as a result of historical mining activity, potentially wiping thousands of pounds off a home or developments sites value.
Our consultancy team at Soils Limited has experience and knowledge which is unsurpassed, allowing an appraisal of the archives of mine plans, historical documents and published literature in order to determine if the risks from mining activities may affect your home or property.
Our reports detail any features related to historic mining and outlining the risks and recommendations for further work. If indications suggest the presence of mining-related features, then further actions may be recommended to carry out intrusive investigations.
Soils Limited can prepare a hydrogeological appraisal for the development and extension of cemeteries.
