Berkshire Industrial Archaeology Group is for anyone interested in industrial archaeology and history, especially those who live or work in the English county of Berkshire and its surrounds.
The group aims to encourage a wider appreciation of industrial archaeology and act as a stimulant to the study of the area’s industrial heritage.
BIAG holds monthly meetings from September to May, often with linked visits and field trips. See our Events page.
During 2015 we organised two field trips. The first was held in late June and involved members walking along the towpath of the Kennet and Avon Canal between Theale and Aldermaston Wharf (with a lunch break at a local hostelry) followed by a short return train trip. Our second was an early August day trip to the Forest of Dean Railway and the Dean Heritage Centre with members gathering for an evening meal at a local hotel before our return home.
Similar events are being planned for 2016, watch our Twitter feed and website Events page for notices once confirmed.
