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


geologyCGS welcomes new members who would like to learn more about their local landscapes, from the underlying rocks that form them and the environments that existed here in the millions of years of earth’s history to the records of past life and evolution and how the geology relates to human culture, both now and in the thousands of years since man arrived here.

Our monthly talks (from September to June) cover a wide range of topics including some of the latest research topics in geology.

The Society’s Geosite team is actively involved in identifying sites of geological interest throughout the county of Cambridgeshire and takes a keen interest in the preservation and conservation of these sites. If you would like to participate in these field visits please contact us, as all help 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 group 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 occasional field trips. Attendance at talks is free to members. Non members are welcome to attend the lectures at a charge of £3 per person. There is also the opportunity to get involved n our geoconservation work.

If you would like to join please come along to one of our talks or contact us.
