Caption for Radstock, Main Road C1965

Radstock My Home Town.

I moved to Radstock in 2014 to live nearer my children. I have spent most of my life living in North Somerset so know the area well. Radstock is steeped in history being an old mining town.It has a superb museum which gives a good insight to the history of the area. My flat was built on the sidings of the Somerset and Dorset Railway which closed in 1966.

1964

I lived in the area in 1964, there was a lot of us Geordies and Scots went to live there. I remember going to the youth club in Radstock and then on the way home calling into the bakery for cream buns. I had a part time job in the supermarket, can't remember the name though. Used to date a girl who lived on Waterloo Rd.
