Somerset Coalfields “Vobster Area”

Following on from previous post Lost Industries (Fussells Ironwork’s and the Somerset coalfields), i have decided to continue this theme and get out and about to see what survives of the collieries in Somerset.

I will be following the old Bristol and Somerset Railway line as much as possible as this and the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway carried most of the Coal from the Coal fields.

Newbury colliery

The next part of the journey see us on the outskirts at Radstock
