The Reading Geological Society has had an active role in geology for over 41 years.

South Oxfordshire

Based in Reading, Berkshire (UK), we are a friendly and enthusiastic group for amateurs, professionals and all those interested in Earth sciences, who want to discover more about the earth, its rocks, minerals and fossils.

We have monthly meetings offering lectures by experts and friendly discussion. All are welcome and there is no charge for visitors.

Our Society is a Local Group of the Geologists' Association.
