The Mole Valley Geological Society normally meets monthly for lectures, soirées and occasional field excursions to study the geology of the Mole Valley and beyond. Founded in 1979, the Society is a Local Group of the Geologists’ Association, founded in 1858. Visitors are very welcome. No previous geological knowledge is needed, just intense curiosity about the Earth and its history.
