probably the ideal spot for the new Radstock station
This is a scene from David Fisher's painting of Radstock 1960. Imagine 'Radstock Market' being replaced with 'Radstock Museum', today's mining museum in the town, and you can see the excellent opportunity for visiting both the new S&D and the museum on the same day! What could be easier? With regular trains south from Bath and north from Midsomer Norton and Shepton just imagine the high profile this fascinating museum will have in the future.
In the shorter term the new station at Radstock is likely to be situated to the right of the level crossing, and it may be that the new line will eventually cross the road on a bridge, but possibly by the time the line crosses the road cars and lorries will be a thing of the past.
