Nottingham’s Caves


Nottingham City Museums and Galleries (part of Nottingham City Council) maintains the Nottingham City Historic Environment Record (HER). It is vitally important that the HER has the most up to date information about caves and other archaeological features so that the archaeology is fully considered during the planning process. Otherwise caves may only be found when development takes place and it is usually too late then to adequately investigate and record them. Many caves have been destroyed because they were not previously known about.

There are more than 600 caves known about within Nottingham City but there are also caves that people know about which are not in the City HER. If anyone knows of any caves which they think the City Council might not be aware of please contact Scott Lomax with details and locations.
