The Society was formed in 1973 by a number of enthusiasts who had met at local evening classes.

The aim of the Society is to advance public appreciation of geology by observation, discussion, field studies, research, illustrated talks and exhibitions.

We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Cavendish Pavilion Hall, Field End Road, Eastcote. Expert speakers give illustrated talks on all aspects of geology, and answer all our questions afterwards. The evening finishes with refreshments and informal chat.

New members are always welcome!
