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.
