    Loving where this project by @Olly Sorsby was going so I thought I'd throw up a rebound of my own. This specific canal had a pretty cool story connected to it. Enjoy. Rebound!

    In 1763 coal was discovered in Radstock and mining began in the area, transport was a major problem because of the poor state of the roads so they had to come up with a solution for getting coal from A to B.

    Somerset Coal Canal gave access from the Somerset coalfield, which at its peak contained 80 collieries, to London. Which made an impact and sparked new business/trade market opportunities.

    Yeah it does have a cool story - you should do a Radstock Mining Co. logo as a rebound...
