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 Gordon Le Pard speaking on The Swash Channel Wreck on Monday, June 6th at  7.45 pm at the Underhill Centre, Hedge End. See here for directions.

The 2016 Meetings programme is available here..  A HIAS leaflet giving details of the Society is available here.

HIAS Journal 23  for 2015 has been published. Focus 83 is available here.
