The Greater London Industrial Archaeology Society (GLIAS) was founded in 1968 to record relics of London's industrial history and to deposit these records with national and local museums, archives, etc; also to advise local authorities and others on the restoration and preservation of historic industrial buildings and machinery.
GLIAS arranges an extensive number of walks and lectures, and publishes a bi-monthly newsletter to keep members in touch with events in industrial archaeology, in London and across the country.
GLIAS also has an award-winning database with images, articles, glossary entries, biographies and company histories.
GLIAS members have a range of interests and skills, from 'railway buffs' to craft workers, engineers to architects. They contribute to the society through their support of events and many produce and assist with articles for publication.
