Marcroft Wagon Works, Radstock

'A broad view of the sawmill and woodworking shop is given here. In the left foreground Mr Harold Green is seen machining a headstock on the mortising and boring machine.' Photo kindly lent by Mike Vincent from his collection. It was given to him by Wilf White, who also wrote the caption.

'This picture shows the blacksmiths' shop at Marcroft and it is seen here busily engaged in the manufacture and re-conditioning of various items of wagon ironwork including springs.' Marcroft closed in 1988. Again caption by Wilf White, thanks to Mike Vincent for the photo.
