Steam in the Somerset coalfield

Reader's voice: The Somerset coalfield?

Liberal England replies: Yes, the Somerset coalfield. There is also some footage from Wales.

I think much of the coal from the Somerset collieries went to Portishead to the two Power Stations there but the B Station was converted to oil firing in the mid 1960s and the A station was closed in 1977 (I think) so that took what was left of the main market for the coal from Somerset.
