West Midlands Limestone

Supplied by: UNKNOWN

Overview

When buying a property in the Black Country, it is recommended that you obtain a West Midlands Limestone report to determine whether the property may be affected by risk of subsidence from past limestone extraction.

Limestone has been mined in the West Midlands since Roman times, and the limestone mines were a significant part of the economic history of the region until their decline in the mid 20th Century.

Because of concern over disused limestone workings affecting a percentage of land and property in the Black County region, the Local Authorities concerned and the Department of the Environment commissioned the West Midlands Limestone 1983 Study (as amended), to identify historic limestone workings in Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall, Wolverhampton and Telford & Wrekin Local Authority areas.

This report represents the best information presently available on limestone workings in the West Midlands
