Dudley

'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.'

'Formed in 1988 to promote interest in the history, heritage and identity of Tipton and to campaign for higher standards of environmental quality and awareness. The Society is a voice for the old independence and pride in Tipton and for its future wellbeing ... The Society produces a quarterly newsletter and holds monthly talks and slide shows with a local flavour, together with other varied social events. Membership is open to all, Tiptonians or not, who have a genuine interest in the town, irrespective of nationality, religion or ethnicity. The Society is non-political, non-sectarian and independent of any other organisation, but is a member of Civic Voice, the national charity for the civic movement in England.'
