Berkshire Industrial Archaeology Group
Berkshire is a county rich in local history and heritage, but often the industrial heritage is little known and is disappearing without preservation or being recorded. Our aim is to encourage a wider appreciation of our industrial past and act as a stimulant to the study and preservation of Berkshire’s industrial heritage. We offer our members regular events and outings and to receive our quarterly newsletter. When required we undertake preservation and recording projects and work with local and countrywide bodies to protect our heritage. Our website can be accessed here.
Industrial archaeology covers many areas; transport, mills, machinery, waterways, factories, quarries, industrial buildings, power generation and much more.
