South East Wales RIGS (Regionally Important Geodiversity Sites) works to enhance and protect a suite of geological sites across South East Wales.

What We Do

  • Identifying sites with RIGS potential
  • Vetting the status of exposures on known sites (this includes highighting threats to existing RIGS sites to the relevant local authorities, as has happened in November 2019 in respect of the Tregunter Farm RIGS site, the refusal of which was reported here)
  • Site clearance
  • Site descriptions
  • Information on RIGS sites to the public (e.g. the recent proposed report on the Llanbadoc Geotrail)

[see also the Project Plan for the various steps in the process]

How You Can Help

  • Join, membership only costs £5
  • Help with vetting sites
  • Help with site clearance
  • Help logging sites (for those with the geological knowledge)

Forthcoming Events

Because of concerns about the coronavirus, all meetings are cancelled and postponed until at least the autumn of 2020. This includes workdays for as long as the lockdown is in place. See also this announcement.

Currently penciled in (where not shown, exact dates will be confirmed nearer the time):

If you want to take part but are unsure how to go about it, please contact our chairman Nigel McGaw at nimar[dot]nmcgaw{@}gmail.com.

Digitised Back-up

Relevant data on RIGS sites and various bits of documentation are held on two external hard drives, which are the property of the South-East Wales RIGS Group.

One thought on “Home”

  1. The SWGA is also supportive of initiatives in geoconservation and geodiversity , in particular through their involvement in the creation of the South East Wales RIGS group.
