Frome Town Walks are organised by the Frome Society for Local Study and will take place on the second Sunday in May, June, August and September, and the two Sundays during the Frome Festival in July.
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, but contributions to Frome charities are most welcome.
The dates of the walks in 2017 are as follows:
