Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
Radstock and Midsomer Norton, Somerset

Radstock is in North East Somerset, just 25 minutes drive to the south of Bath.

Map locator - Radstock

Radstock was formerly at the heart of the Somerset Coal Field, but all the pits closed quite a time ago and it's now a commuter town for Bath; heavy mineral extraction remains in the form of quarries just to the south of Radstock, from where much of the stone is taken away by train via Frome - a town that's just a few files away.

Radstock itself used to have two railway lines running through the heart of it - a branch of the Great Western, and the Somerset and Dorset main line on its way from Bath to Bournemouth, with express trains such as the Pines Express coming from as far afield as Manchester.
