The Cambridgeshire Geological Society promotes interest in the geology of Cambridgeshire, the UK and worldwide.


geologyIt welcomes new members who would like to learn more about their local landscapes, the rocks that form them, the way they are formed and how geology relates to our society, past and future. Our monthly talks (from September to June) cover a wide range of topics including some of the latest research topics in geology.

If you would like to participate in these field visits please contact us, as all hep is welcome.

The Cambridgeshire Geology Club was formed in November 1984 and was created at the time to replace the “Geological Section” of the University of Cambridge, Natural History Society which ceased to exist about this time. The Club has developed from this strong base and now works in partnership with several local community organisations to involve their members in local geology projects whilst still maintaining an excellent programme of talks which are of interest to professional geologists as well as those with a general interest.

In March 2016, the Cambridgeshire Geology Club changed its name to the Cambridgeshire Geological Society.

The Society arranges ten talks each year plus a number of field trips during the summer period. Attendance at talks is free to members. Non members are welcome to attend the lectures at a charge of £3 per person.
