Reading Geological Society lecture

The Reading Geological Society is a friendly and enthusiastic group of amateurs and professionals interested in earth sciences who want to discover more about the earth, its rocks, minerals and fossils.

They meet once a month for lectures by experts and friendly discussion. All are welcome and there is no charge for visitors.

There are also monthly field meetings providing an opportunity to travel around the UK with fellow enthusiasts, with occasional extended trips further afield.

This is an extra event, a special joint meeting between the Thames Valley Regional Group of the Geological Society, Reading Geological Society and the Berkshire Geoconservation Group.

Tom Power, the the former senior engineering geologist with John Laing Construction, will be giving a talk about the Wing glacial deposits - the forgotten SSSI - which contains one of the most complete sequences of interglacial peat in the country.
