This thesis is an attempt to generalise the methods of the Wirtinger presentation for obtaining groups which are invariants of a classical link. It is closely allied to the ideas of Joyce on quandles. In it are produced a number of groups which are obtained by associating two generators to each arc of a link projection, and two relations to each crossing. Some properties of these invariants are established.
