This is a subscription-based database.

From the announcement

A major new online resource which makes available geological map data from the British Geological Survey has been launched. Geology Digimap provides a fascinating insight into the earth's physical structure and substance, its history, and the processes that act on it by delivering digital geological map data of Great Britain.

Made available by JISC Collections, through EDINA’s Digimap platform, this new resource includes onshore geological data covering bedrock geology, superficial deposits, mass movement and artificial ground, as well as a whole range of linear features such as faults and fossil beds. The resource also contains the BGS Lexicon of Named Rock Units, to provide a wealth of extra detailed material.
