NORFOLK INDUSTRIAL ARCHAEOLOGY SOCIETY
We have now been having a mix of in person and Zoom meetings. Zoom meetings avoid travelling in the dark winter months, reduce risk of infections and allow us to enjoy speakers who may not have been able to travel to in person meetings. We now have over 20 members joining us on Zoom, more are welcome. All members will be sent an email before the Zoom meeting with instructions on how to join. If any members need assistance please feel free to contact us. Guests are also welcome, please email putting NIAS24 Talk Invite into the subject line of the email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are arranging a mix of meetings, some via Zoom, some traditional in person meetings and social events and a summer outing.
We hope to be meeting at the Diamond Centre (see bottom of page for location) in September, October and December 2023. The December meeting will be our AGM. We are currently planning to have Zoom meetings in November 2023, January, February and March 2024.

The Diamond Centre is a former school operated by Sprowston Council and houses a number of community uses.
It can be accessed from the outer ring road, from School Lane which is between the Wroxham Road roundabout and the Sprowston Road roundabout. You have to turn left into School lane so a loop round the Sprowston Road roundabout may be required to get onto the North carriageway.
There is a large free carpark to the rear of the centre, off Neville Road. School Lane and Neville Road are marked in Green on the map. There is direct access frrom the carpark into the building.
Past meetings are listed elsewhere on this site.
As always the Chairman welcomes suggestions of speakers. If you know anyone or have heard a good relevant talk please let him know.
If you can give a talk of interest to our members please get in touch with our chairman. He would particularly like to hear of members who can make a presentation to the Society, be it for a full evening (an hour to a maximum of hour and a half) or just 10 minutes on a members night.
Reasonable expenses and agreed fees are paid to speakers (or nominated good cause). (Download notes for Speakers Here)
