The society is for anyone interested in geology,
whether beginners or experienced. This is our 46th year!
We hold monthly talks on a
wide range of earth science topics, usually on the 2nd Thursday of the
. We have several day and weekend field
trips a year and sometimes a longer foreign excursion. Our
talks normally take place at Oaklands College. Click
here to download detailed directions to the venue.
For the first part of
2021 talks will
continue to take place online, via Zoom.
It is uncertain when we will be able to resume meeting at Oaklands
College, so the venue for later talks is marked 'To be confirmed'.
Please check the web site for updates. Next
meeting: Thursday 10 June 2021, 7:30pm
with Humber Bridge in the background.

square peg in a round hole!
Geological trails and guides We are starting to build up a collection of downloadable geological
trails, and guides to geologically interesting locations. The
first ones can be seen on the 'Trails and
