Newbury Geological Study Group (NGSG)   | How we are run

Newbury Geological Study Group COVID-19  all  field meetings are currently suspended.  Online meetings are taking place. See Talks  and   Facebook page

The Newbury Geological Study Group arranges trips to sites of Geological interest.  Trips are normally day trips within 115 miles or roughly two hours driving time from Newbury. We also have weekend trips to sites which can not be visited in day.  For most trips  Dr. Les James of the University of Reading provides the geological expertise. Membership is open to all and it is not necessary to have any knowledge of the subject or to live in the Newbury area.  

Membership is free. All we need is your name, email address and phone number.  We charge £10.00 per person for most trips. This is collected on the day and goes towards running NGSG, including paying Dr. Les James (our Geological Consultant) to cover his time and expenses. Children are most welcome and there is no charge but  they must be accompanied by an adult who will accept responsibility  for them.  To join, read our terms and conditions, then email

Include confirmation that you accept our data protection policy.
