Aim of the Society

The aim of the Society is to promote interest in geology and its allied sciences for people of all levels of geological knowledge, from interested amateur to professional geologist.

This is achieved by holding regular monthly meetings at which invited speakers cover all aspects of the geological spectrum, ranging from palaeontology through to structural geology, volcanism, earthquakes and environmental effects.

In addition, an online Quarterly Newsletter is provided to all members.

Farnham Geological Society is a Local Group of the Geologists’ Association.

Currently, membership stands at 89, and extends from Cornwall to Dorset, Gloucester, Hereford, Warwickshire, and into Scotland.

In 2020 we celebrated our 50th Anniversary and as part of the commemoration, our Chair prepared a Guide to the Local Geology of Farnham, and a booklet Farnham Geological Society 1970–2020.

Meetings are generally held on the second Friday of the month (7:30pm for 8:00pm) in The Barley Room, The Maltings, Farnham, and on line via zoom. Car parking is available at the venue. Parking is currently free after 6:30pm.

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.

Visitors and potential new members are always welcome.

New for 2024
