Welcome to the North Staffordshire Group of the Geologists’ Association (NSGGA).

Lecture meetings are held during the autumn and winter, at 7.30pm usually on the second Thursday of the month. Due to coronavirus restrictions, lectures will be held online via Zoom for at least the remainder of 2020.

Field meetings are usually held at approximately monthly intervals over the spring and summer. Hopefully the field programme will recommence in Spring 2021.


2019/2020 Winter Programme:
Due to coronavirus restrictions lectures will held online via Zoom until at least 2021.

NSGGA Members will be sent a link to the Zoom session automatically. Non-members can request a link via the contacts page
