NJB Hoofcare - Area of Operation for Radstock, Somerset

Neither this town nor its near neighbour, Midsomer Norton, is mentioned in the Domesday Book, but the area is believed to have been settled since the iron age, growing greatly in Roman times with the construction of the Fosse Way. In later years, the town won its wealth through mineral deposits and coal mining. In its turn, the industrialisation of coal mining here in Radstock pushed it to the forefront of railway development to distribute the coal from the mines all over the south west. Since the mines were abandoned, the area has been declared a Site of Significant Scientific Interest, which attracts many visitors each year, and makes sure that we always have something interesting to see or to talk about when farmers from the Radstock are call us in for:
