The Single Onshore Boreholes Index (SOBI) is an index of over one million records of boreholes, shafts and wells from all forms of drilling and site investigation work held by the BGS.

The collection covers onshore and near shore boreholes from Great Britain dating back to at least 1790 and ranging from one to several thousand metres deep.

Each year thousands of new records are added.

Individual borehole scans are now freely available via the Borehole scans page.
