Radstock Museum Football Exhibition

Definitely worth a visit if you have an interest in the local teams from the age before tvs when local footballers could be huge stars in their home town. Fascinating insight into the teams and some of the managers. The area produced quite a few famous players and coaches - one Midsomer Norton born man Bert Head had his own stars which he brought on to play for Swindon Town. We took our Dad and he enjoyed it immensely chatting to the volunteers about some of the local legends and some of the local players. Definitely worth a trip if you think museums are stuffy places full of irrelevant things - this is the story of a community at play - and play they did!
