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 a talk by Ray Riley on the Social Impact of the Railways on Monday, September 5th at  7.45 pm at the Underhill Centre, Hedge End. See here for directions.

PLEASE NOTE that a Memorial Event, consisting of a number of talks, will be held for the late Dr Edwin Course at Bursleden Brickworks on Saturday, October 8, from 2-5 pm. See here for details.
