Mail Order

The Volunteers at the Museum Shop offer an old fashioned Mail Order service. You identify the book and send us the money and we will post it to you.
This is best achieved via email to shop@radstockmuseum.co.uk but you could also telephone us on 01761 437722.
All titles are priced exclusive of postage. These titles can be posted to you at their individual postage costs, which will be established once you have made your selection. We may need to review this system in future but at the moment the lighter books attract a lighter postage charge.
