As far as locations go, I've started research on coal mines in the two locations I've scouted-out so far here in W.Yorkshire and in N.Tyneside, both historically coal-mining ares.
Whilst they may have been capped and/or flooded when they were closed down, making them inaccessible, there will invariably be slag-heaps nearby where you could scavenge useable coal from as a primary heat-energy source
As for food stockpiles, as I was feeding the moggy earlier I tried some of his biscuits ( ) to see if they could be a viable hi-energy food source, here's what the blurb says on the back of the box:
Copper (as copper sulphate) 10mg/Kg
Vitamin A 12000iu/Kg
Vitamin C 150mg/Kg
Vitamin D3 1200iu/Kg
Vitamin E 150mg/Kg
I think this needs a thorough scientific investigation...how would a human cope living on a diet of cat-biscuits for 1 week?

A very nutritious food, 100g of the raw leaves contain about 2.7g. protein, 9.2g. carbohydrate, 187mg Calcium, 66mg phosphorus, 3.1mg iron, 76mg sodium, 397mg potassium, 36mg magnesium, 14000iu vitamin A, 0.19mg vitamin B1, 0.26mg vitamin B2, 35mg vitamin C.
The plant is used internally in the treatment of gall bladder and urinary disorders, gallstones, jaundice, cirrhosis, dyspepsia with constipation, oedema associated with high blood pressure and heart weakness, chronic joint and skin complaints, gout, eczema and acne. The plant has an antibacterial action, inhibiting the growth of Staphylococcus aureus, Pneumococci, Meningococci, Bacillus dysenteriae, B. typhi, C. diphtheriae, Proteus etc
Nettles are a very valuable addition to the diet, they are a very nutritious food that is easily digested and is high in minerals (especially iron) and vitamins (especially A and C)[4, 201, 238]. Only use young leaves (see the notes above on toxicity) and wear stout gloves when harvesting them to prevent being stung. Cooking the leaves, or thoroughly drying them, neutralizes the sting, rendering the leaf safe to eat
A tea made from the leaves has traditionally been used as a cleansing tonic and blood purifier so the plant is often used in the treatment of hay fever, arthritis, anaemia etc. The whole plant is antiasthmatic, antidandruff, astringent, depurative, diuretic, galactogogue, haemostatic, hypoglycaemic and a stimulating tonic
