Working With Hand Tools - The Traditional Way

The Radstock Museum has asked me, representing TATHS, to mount an exhibition of tools, featuring twelve of the trades that were carried out in the Radstock, Midsomer Norton and Bath area.

For a short period only, we are offering the chance to purchase three of our publications at bargain prices. These books would make excellent presents to yourself or someone else.
