The BGS holds a large archive of digital, geophysical, downhole log data from boreholes distributed across the UK. We can provide information on data availability for named boreholes or within specified geographic areas, together with cost estimates and options for supplying copies.

In addition, logs from some boreholes are only held in analogue form; these can be supplied as photocopies or scanned PDFs by our GeoRecords Plus+ service.
