Radstock is home to the Radstock Museum which is housed in a former cattle market hall, and has a range of permanent and temporary exhibits which offer an insight into life in North East Somerset highlighting the 19th century.
The fascinating history of mining and life in the Somerset coalfields are reflected in many of the museum exhibits. Other aspects of local history on exhibit include a 19th Century school room, a forge, carpenter’s shop and agricultural implements. Also on display are memorabilia relating to the Somerset Coal Canal and the two railways (Somerset and Dorset and Great Western Railways). Visit www.radstockmuseum.co.uk for more information.
