The Five Arches subscription service started in 1987, and ensures that the first copies of each new edition are sent straight to subscribers ‘hot from the press’. Only then are the rest of the copies delivered to the Museum Shop and local retail outlets.

An annual subscription is for 3 issues and this includes postage.

For UK delivery: £18.00 or for Overseas delivery: £30.00

There are three ways to buy a subscription to the Five Arches Journal; securely on-line, put a cheque in the post or pay cash at the Museum.

Securely on-line is the best and quickest way. Please send an email to

State in your email message:

  • Whether your subscription is for UK or overseas delivery
  • Your name, email and telephone number.
  • Your own address.
  • The address you would like Five Arches delivered to, if different.

If you choose to buy on-line we will generate a PayPal invoice and you will receive this by email. When you get the invoice the amount that you see will be the cost of your purchase(s) including the postage cost.

You do not need to hold or sign up to a PayPal account to do this –you can use the GUEST option. It is secure and easy to pay this way using your debit or credit card.

You can also buy a subscription by sending a cheque, made payable to Radstock Museum, plus your name and address (or that of the person to whom the subscription is to be sent) to: Radstock Museum, Waterloo Road, Radstock, BA3 3EP. If you are able to include an email address that will assist us in communicating with you and reduce our admin costs too.

You can buy a subscription to Five Arches in the Museum Shop during normal opening hours.

Whatever subscription method you use, when we receive your payment, you will receive confirmation of your order and Five Arches will be delivered to you when the next issue is published.
