Is there anybody from Somerset who can tell me please why I can't find Radstock or even it'd hundred of Kilmerston in the Victoria County Histories for Somerset?

It turns out that OH,henceforth known as Adge, and who has a father is a proud Yorkshireman, is part of a family that comes from Somerset.

Sharron - I can't find it either and have looked for some other towns in that area, they are absent too! Perhaps 'they' haven't processed it yet...

I hope 'Adge' loikes his zoidurrr :-D.

There are local 'jokes' about Radstock, but I wouldn't insult your intelligence!


Sharron Report 24 Jan 2013 23:31

I don't come from Radstock. Go on,insult it.

If you can't put them on here send me a message.

I missed the t and thought it was something you put on a radiator :-0


Sharron Report 24 Jan 2013 23:49

I've looked on Wiki thanks Island. That was how I found the name of the hundred.


SheilaWestWilts Report 25 Jan 2013 00:02

Well, the local band is a couple of guys - quote 'award winning inbreds' unquote - called 'The Cleverly Brothers' identical twins aged 54 and 56 who live on 'Twelve Toe Estate' :-D.

Nuff said, lol


Sharron Report 25 Jan 2013 00:06

Thatcould explain an awful lot.

Island,could you pass on what I said to Mr Magoo please?
