SIHG is a group of the Surrey Archaeological Society (SyAS) with an active membership. It grew out of an adult education course on industrial archaeology held at the University of Surrey in 1975. Our lecture series continue this tradition, albeit in a new location, from September to March each season. In addition it is actively involved in several projects, and 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. In 1990 the Group hosted the Annual Conference of the AIA.
