Welcome to the new EGRG website… and thanks to Graham Bowden!

Welcome to the new EGRG website. ¬†This site was developed by Al James in January 2014 as part of the RGS-IBG’s programme to bring all research group websites in-house. The EGRG site was previously hosted by The School of Geography at the University of Manchester, where it was maintained by Graham Bowden for over 10 years!¬† We are extremely grateful to Graham (shown below with former EGRG Chair Neil Coe) for all his hard work for EGRG.
