Hampshire Industrial Archaeology Society ( HIAS )

is an active group with a current membership of about 100, interested in all aspects of  Hampshire's Industrial Archaeology.

Our activities have included surveys of mills, breweries, brickworks, etc., as well as restoration and preservation. Visits to places of IA interest are also arranged and we host and participate in IA conferences. We have published several monographs and have an annual Journal, in addition to Focus, a half yearly newsletter. We meet once a month at the Underhill Centre, St John's Church, St. John's Road, Hedge End at 7.45 pm, usually with a talk on an IA related subject (see meetings for details).



The next meeting is Bill White speaking on "Toys" on December 5th at 7.45 pm at the Underhill Centre, Hedge End. See here for directions.

The 2017 Meetings programme is available here.  A HIAS leaflet giving details of the Society is available here.

HIAS Journal 24  for 2016 has been published. Thanks to the generosity of one of our late members, Mrs Daphne Meller, we are now able to make all the journals, up to and including 2010, available online, see here.  You can also find there back issues of our bi annual Newsletter.


HIAS is a registered charity, No. 276898.
