'Based in Dudley in England’s West Midlands, the Black Country Geological Society (BCGS) is at the heart of the Black Country, where evidence suggests the world-changing Industrial Revolution commenced. The society as it is now, was formed in 1975 but was preceded by three antecedent geological societies through which we can trace our origins to 1842, making the BCGS one of the first geological societies in the world. This gives us a vast and exciting history with connections to some of the greatest geologists of their time such as, Sir Roderick Impey Murchison and Professor Charles Lapworth ... The Society holds regular meetings to listen to invited lecturers each month with these indoor meetings taking place during the winter on a Monday evening.'

'See history brought to life and discover the story of the Black Country at our open-air living museum. Meet our historic characters who’ll show you what it was like to live and work in one of the first industrialised landscapes in Britain as you explore 26 acres of reconstructed shops, pubs and houses.'
