SGMRG was set up by local people to understand, record and where appropriate preserve the remains, of what was once an extensive industry, for the present community and future generations.
SGMRG is a voluntary organisation that relies on grants and donations from local people. Our membership is made up of archaeologists, surveyors, historians, engineers, cavers and those simply interested in finding more about what lies under their feet.
We have regular meetings, walks and talks including the opportunity to get involved in exploration, archaeology and resotoration work. If you would like more information contact the Chairman Roger Gosling:

The Tabernacle is a famous historical building built in 1741 which until 1989 was used by Kingswood residents for a range of community activity.
A group of local Councillors have come together with interested colleagues to work together with South Gloucestershire Council, the landowner and CVS South Gloucestershire to secure the future of the Tabernacle site. The vision is to develop the facilities in Kingswood for local people.
