The 2017 season of public Frome Town Walks organised by the Frome Society for Local Study has finished. The 2018 season will be held between May and September and actual dates will appear here in due course.
They set off at 14.30 from outside the Round Tower in Justice Lane and are designed to give an understanding of the development of the history and economy of the town from its monastic foundation in 685 AD by St Aldhelm, through the middle ages to the present day. There is a special emphasis on Frome’s listed buildings with their broad range of religious and vernacular architecture. The route will include some steep hills.
The guides are Ruth Angel, Cliff Bawden, Alastair MacLeay and Janet Millar.
Copies of the Frome Heritage Trail (£3) and the Buildings of Frome (£9) will be available to buy.
Frome Town Walks are free, except for those during the Frome Festival held in July each year, but contributions to Frome charities are most welcome.
Special arrangements for additional Frome Town Walks should be made with Alastair MacLeay on 01373 836595 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
