Situated at the heart of the former Somerset Coalfield, the Old Market Hall in Radstock town centre displays a Heritage Collection of artefacts and memorabilia from the era of Victorian mining in Somerset.

Come and immerse yourself in the life and times of a Somerset Miner and his family. Discover the coal face where he worked, visit the store in which his wife shopped and sit at the desks where his children went to school.
