The Library/Archive is open to researchers by appointment throughout the year. Researchers are asked to email, telephone or write to arrange an appointment and also give brief details of their research. This will allow our volunteers to locate relevant documents and photographs in advance of your visit. In line with policy at most archives today charges are levied for photocopies and other services. Details are available on request.
The Museum and Library is run entirely by volunteers and we receive no support from the local authorities. Please help to keep admission free by making a donation – £2 is suggested – which can be enhanced if you sign a Gift Aid Declaration.
We are very grateful for donations of material which relate to the history of Frome and the surrounding parishes but please contact us in advance so appropriate arrangements can be made for your visit.
