Monday 09th January

Welcome to our new-look website designed by Matthew Becker.

Even if 2017 does not look good on the political front, for Mid Wales Geology Club it is a year in which to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Originally named the “Llanidloes and District Mineral Collectors Club”, it was founded by the present secretary, Bill Bagley and the late Jim Nicholls. The club has grown and changed over time expanding it’s interests to include other aspects of geology like sedimentology, stratigraphy, geochemistry, geophysics and geomorphology.

The anniversary will be celebrated by a day long series of talks and demonstrations in June.
