The objectives of the Group are to further those of the Geological Society by:

  • Holding meetings of interest to members
  • Informing members of the Society's activities and promoting co-operation between geologists, and between them and kindred professions
  • Bringing to the notice of Council opinions and proposals designed to promote the interests of the Society and advising Council on matters of local interest or concern
  • Carrying out such other lawful actions as are incidental or conducive to the attainment of the above objectives


The Group covers the area from around Banbury in the north to the Isle of Wight in the south, and from Swindon in the west to the edges of London in the east.

  • AECOM, Midpoint, Alencon Link, Basingstoke RG21 7PP
  • SOCOTEC, Glossop House, Hogwood Lane, Finchampstead, Wokingham RG40 4QW

Meetings are mostly on a a geoenvironmental or geotechnical theme, with occasional 'pure' geology topics. The Group also holds occasional field trips and joint meetings with other groups.

If you have any suggestions for possible topics for meetings or other activities you would like the Group to undertake, please contact the committee.
