About Us

Somerset Dowsers is an Affiliated Local Group (ALG) of the British Society of Dowsers (BSD).

We are based in Taunton, Somerset, and welcome Members and guests from around the County, and beyond.  The group has a range of Members from novice to expert and professional dowsers.  You can join the group for a small annual fee, which means you can attend Talks and Outings for free, or you can attend as a guest and pay for each event.  As a Member you can also borrow items from our Library, free of charge.  For more information, see our Membership page.

Our group provides a focal point and network in Somerset for people interested in dowsing.  We help people to learn more about dowsing and its potential applications – through Talks, Outings, Workshops, Training, Events, the Library, and discussion with other Members.  We also provide the opportunity to experience practical dowsing – through Outings, Workshops, and Training.

Our Talks are now held at Ruishton Village Hall (near Taunton - see Contact Us page for map), and are free of charge to Members, and cost £3 for Non-Members and guests.  The Talks are generally held on the last Monday of every other month at 7.30pm, but please check the Schedule in case of any variation. 

If you are a Non-Member wishing to attend a Talk or Outing, please inform our Secretary, as places may be limited - see the Contact Us page for details.

We are also available for talks, events and workshops.  If you are interested, please contact our Chairman for further information - please see the Contact Us page.

Sun 22nd Oct - Outing – Water Dowsing – Matt French

(Please note - not on the last Sun in Oct, as this enables our outing to take place before the clocks change)

Matt French will lead a water dowsing outing in the Langport area.  We will have the opportunity to dowse visible overground flowing water, to enable us to tune in to water and get a dowsing reaction.  We will then look to dowse for 'hidden' underground water, possibly including services (water pipes).

The dowsing will be rounded off with a trip to a pub for lunch.
