NJB Hoofcare - Area of Operation in & around Nailsea

Nailsea is in a beautiful rural location of North Somerset, about eight miles south west of Bristol. The pennant sandstone, which lies beneath the area, has been used since Roman times for building local houses, is usually a brownish colour, but there are some strata of coral pink, which can be seen in some local buildings to this day. The other great mineral wealth possessed by Nailsea was particularly high quality coal, mined here since the early 16th century. The quality of the coal made it ideal for smelting glass, so a healthy glass industry grew up in the area too. The last coal mine closed in 1882 due to competition from mines in the north of England and South Wales being able to distribute their product more efficiently through the burgeoning rail network. We always enjoy our visits to Nailsea when local farmers call us in for:
