Radstock Museum runs two series of TALKS.
Bygone Days talks celebrate both local and national history.
Science in Radstock talks are ‘popular science’ talks; an eclectic mixture of current science disciplines and past, present and future technologies.
There are several ways to keep in touch with the Museum talks programmes.

BYGONE DAYS TALK
Tuesday October 2nd 2018 at 7:30pm at The Somer Centre, Midsomer Norton.
The Kilmersdon gravity Incline and Colliery,
by Norman Andrew.
The Kilmersdon Gravity Incline and Colliery talk is a “then and now” talk, based around Norman’s childhood memories and his recent re-visit to the area.
It will be an illustrated PowerPoint presentation about the operation of the coal wagon incline and the basic workings of the pit taken in the context of the Somerset coalfields back in the day.
As a train spotting youth in the sixties Norman spent every summer holiday with his grandma Marshall in Radstock. His uncle Bill worked down Kilmersdon pit at Haydon, and Norman played on the railway!
