East Surrey Mines


The Godstone Hearthstone Mines (Arch Mine, Godstone Main Series and Marden Mine) were originally worked for building stone and hearthstone and approximately 5 miles of workings are accessible today. Though more recently worked than the Merstham Quarries they are deteriorating faster. There have been a number of collapses in recent years.

The entrance is gated. Access control has been devolved by the landowner to Wealden Cave and Mine Society. Visits are not permitted during the bat hibernation season.

Anyone wishing to visit or for further information please contact the WCMS - Surrey Mines Agent.

The grid reference has been removed at the request of the WCMS.
