Just wondering if anyone could tell me how to go about finding out who owns the mineral rights for a particular mine or area? Would that be the land registry office or some other place?

Cheers for any tips!

there were a few 'free miners' among the workforce at Combe Down, one of them explained some of this to me, although you really needed to know the area ( which I don't ) to understand the explanation properly. IP: 92.3.239.216
