Welcome to the NAMHO website

The National Association
of Mining History Organisations

We were formed in 1979 to act as the national body for mining history in the United Kingdom. There are now over 70 member organisations, including societies, museums, firms, etc. and membership now extends to Ireland. On this site, you will find out more about NAMHO, its aims, its members and its contribution to the mining heritage.

Active mine explorers will also find guidance on managing archaeological finds underground as well as how to lead groups of novices and experienced explorers.

Armchair miners are also catered for with an extensive bibliography.

Some parts of the site need a password to enter.  If you want to see these, please contact the Webmaster.
