SGMRG was set up by local people to understand, record and where appropriate preserve the remains, of what was once an extensive industry, for the present community and future generations.
SGMRG is a voluntary organisation that relies on grants and donations from local people. Our membership is made up of archaeologists, surveyors, historians, engineers, cavers and those simply interested in finding more about what lies under their feet.
We have regular meetings, walks and talks including the opportunity to get involved in exploration, archaeology and resotoration work. If you would like more information contact the Chairman Roger Gosling:

We are a welcoming society for people who enjoy learning about all aspects of Decorative and Fine Arts. Meetings are held generally on the third Monday in the month from October to June. Each lecture, which lasts approximately one hour, is given in the morning and afternoon. Non-members wishing to attend a lecture may be able to do so as a Guest.
In addition we arrange visits to places of historic and cultural interest and hold days of special interest. We have volunteers engaged on conservation and preservation projects and others involved in Church Recording.
