Surrey Industrial History Group (SIHG) holds a fortnightly lecture series on industrial archaeology each year at the Education Centre, the Cathedral, Guildford. The group also holds two series of talks in Leatherhead. SIHG arranges other meetings and visits in Surrey and farther afield and carries out research, recording and restoration projects.

More information is available on the SIHG Web Site.

 SIHG grew out of an adult education course on industrial archaeology held at the University of Surrey in 1975.
The Group produces occasional publications and a regular newsletter.
The Group makes an annual award in the form of a plaque for a conservation project in the county. It maintains close contact with other bodies in Surrey, including the County Council, the Museums Group and the Local History Council.

SIHG is a founder member of the South East Region Industrial Archaeology Conference (SERIAC) and is affiliated to the national Association for Industrial Archaeology (AIA). In 1990 the Group hosted the Annual Conference of the AIA.
