Reformed in 2013, the Home Counties North group covers north London, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.  We aim to provide a friendly local focus for geology enthusiasts from all backgrounds, including academia, those working in the geoscience community or hobbyists.  All ages very welcome.

Our committee is enthusiastic about providing events which cover a broad range of subject matter in the form of both field trips, workshops and talks.  Our speakers will always be interesting and knowledgeable and we aim to assist younger members with their CPD.


We will be hosting a Regional heat of the Early Career Geologist Award.  

If you are a Fellow of the Geological Society and work in a geologically related field, are within the first 10 years of your career and live or work within the Home Counties North constituent area, then you are eligible to enter.  

You will need to submit an abstract of no more than 500 words by Friday 7 August 2015.  Please include the main points of your talk and really sell it to the judges!

A shortlist of regional finalist will be selected to talk on their chosen topic at the regional final to be held on Wednesday 30 September 2015, in Hemel Hempstead.

The winner of the Regional final will be invited to present at the National Final, at Burlington House, London.

Brief details of other future events are available on our Programme for 2015.  Further information for each event is given below.
