Somersetshire Coal Canal

The Somersetshire Coal Canal was opened around 1800 and ran from Paulton to join the Kennet & Avon Canal near Bath. The Radstock Branch ran from Radstock but was only joined to the main line by a tramway.

Route covered by my Somersetshire Coal Canal Maps.

The canal closed in 1902. Restoration started around 2014 with proposals to restore the main line to Paulton.

I have added Somersetshire Coal Canal Maps to the range of free maps I produce for restoration projects.
