This book in the series of Private Owner Wagons studies all the known wagon operators in the historic county of Somerset.  This area had a number of extractive industries – principally coal and stone – which in turn meant there were more wagons owned here than in comparable rural counties.

Illustrated with over 400 photographs, drawings, maps and items of ephemera, this volume enumerates several thousand wagons, belonging mostly to colliery companies, stone quarries, and coal factors and merchants, in use over the eighty years from 1860 to 1940.  As well as identifying the owners, the opportunity has been taken to flesh out the people and businesses concerned to give an indication not just of the period but also the wider social and historical context in which the wagons were operated.  Thus this book will be of interest to social and industrial historians as well as to aficionados of the private owner wagon.
