One of the longest standing elements of the journal is the Five Arches Ramble, which began in Issue 5 in 1987. Produced by Dick Graham and Dennis Chedgy – the first ramble started at Victoria Hall, Radstock and headed out of town on the Frome Road. Since then Dick and Dennis have rambled the length and breadth of the coalfield, and others have taken up the challenge of walking through history too.
The rambles capture memories of times past, relating them to the communities we know today, and many readers have used them as a starting point to explore the Somerset coalfield.
