About the Author:
Lorna recently retired college Lecturer who has been studying a Foundation Degree in History, Heritage and Archaeology because of a long standing personal interest (Andy is the Course Leader). She is a volunteer at Radstock Museum, recently becoming a Trustee. She is a member of the Education Group. She also a member of the Documentation Team with the specific role of Acquisitions Officer. The Museum has a high profile and is recognised for its excellence both in the immediate area and further afield, attracting several thousand visitors per year. As well as arranging four different Exhibitions each year, it also organises a series of monthly specialist talks attracting reasonable audiences on topics such as 'Science in Radstock', 'Fracking and the Mendips' and 'Bygone Days'. Radstock itself is, of course, central to the 'story' of the North East Somerset coalfield.
