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 25th Jun - Outing – The Rollrights – Ron Dudley-Smith

Ron Dudley-Smith has been dowsing for over 50 years, he is a professional tutor for the BSD and the Warden for the Rollright Stones.

The Rollright Stones is an ancient site (3,500-6,000 years old) located on the ancient Cotswold Ridgeway, on the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border. With no other stone circle as their neighbour, the complex consists of three main elements: The Kings Men stone circle, the King Stone and the Whispering Knights.

A popular site for an array of seekers, the Stones attracted 16,000 visitors last year to view the hoard of finds from Roman occupation to an excavation conducted in March 2016 of a burial site for a Saxon female along with an impressive and complete bronze skillet.

Earth energies abound, with blind springs, bands of halos, necklaces geo-spirals, vortices, energy centres (both good and bad). Plus, the Elen and Belinus leys run all around the site.

The Outing will be truly eventful with the opportunity to dowse for more hidden burial sites and so much more!
