Local Society: 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.'
