The Sandstone Caves of NottinghamThe Nottingham Caves Survey is in the process of recording all of Nottingham’s 450+ sandstone caves. The project is now underway and we are surveying caves even as you read this. Keep checking the website for newly-surveyed caves! You can read more about the caves, see photographs, watch fly-through videos and take virtual tours by clicking the links on the Cave Map below, or using the thumbnail links to the right.Contacting UsPlease use the Contact Formor call Dr Strange-Walker on: 0115 896 7405.
The Cave MapTo view more information on any one of the caves recorded, click the specific pin on the Google map below. You can then follow the link provided to view that cave’s microsite, which contains background history, access information, images and videos (like the one above).Key: 3 stars - an excellent and important cave system, recommended viewing. 3-star caves are usually open to the public some times.2 stars - quite interesting caves, worth viewing if you are interested. Some of these are open to the public, but many are in private ownership.1 star - for cave afficionados only! Most of these are in private ownership.Red X - caves which are lost, filled or blocked. There are a lot of these!We’ve added all the lost caves that we know about, although there are probably more. Other caves are added as they are surveyed.Note: At the moment we’re having a few linking problems with Google Maps. To get the cave microsites to open in a new window, click the starred pin and then RIGHT-CLICK the link. This will give you the option to open the cave microsite in a new tab or a new window. We’re trying to fix this!
