Farnham Geological Society
The aim of the Society is to promote interest in geology and its allied sciences for people of all levels of geological knowledge, ranging from the interested amateur up to professional geologist. This is achieved by holding regular monthly meetings in Farnham at which invited speakers cover all aspects of the geological spectrum, ranging from palaeontology through to structural geology, volcanism, earthquakes and environmental effects. Currently, membership stands at over 80.
In 2020 we celebrated our 50th anniversary and our chairman has prepared a Guide to the Local Geology of Farnham, our Field Trips Organiser a virtual field Trip from St Paul’s to Southwark Cathedral. Also some photos from past field trips.
The meetings are held in The Barley Room, The Maltings, Farnham, generally on the second Friday of the month (7.30 for 8.00pm). Visitors and potential new members are always welcome. In addition, the Society arranges many varied and interesting field trips throughout the year, ranging in length from day outings up to visits lasting a week or more.
The Society is also registered as a Local Group within the Geologists' Association and regularly exhibits its achievements and findings at meetings arranged by the Association.
