The Reading Geological Society is a fully inclusive society which welcomes anyone who has an interest in geology. We have been active for over 44 years.


Inkpen

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 monthly field meetings provide an opportunity to travel around the UK with fellow enthusiasts. We also arrange extended field trips further afield and sometimes abroad.

Hurley Chalk Pit

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

We have links with the Berkshire Geoconservation Group who help in conserving geological sites in Berkshire. Their website gives an overview of the Geology of Berkshire and shows details of the Berkshire Local Geological Sites.
