For our 40th anniversary in 2015 we started a photo archive and will continue to add to it.

Historic photos from the Lapworth Museum
BCGS member Bernard Duggan has been helping at the Lapworth Museum. As a result we are able to show some historic photos of Black Country geology courtesy of the Lapworth Museum.

Historic Black Country photos by Norman Dutton
Norman Dutton taught geology in Darlaston and Wednesbury from 1969 until 1995 and was involved in trying to keep the West Midlands County Council from filling in Pouk Hill Quarry. He has digitised all his slides taken there together with others from the Black Country and thought that we might like to include them in our photo archive.
