The Five arches, where the former Somerset and Dorset Railway crossed the Great Western Railway at Radstock, features on the front cover of a new children's book, Kitty's Bicycle, written by local author and railway enthusiast Andy Lunness. The book, which uses the familiar childhood experience of learning to ride a bicycle, was written to teach children about money and savings. It is one in a series of books with a financial theme based on the author's own family. The story ends with a bicycle ride along the former Great Western line, now a cycle route. The book is available on-line direct from MALT Publishing at malt-publishing.co.uk, where a 63-piece jigsaw of the Five Arches illustration by Mark Trewren is also available.
