Frome Town Walks 2019

Story posted on

The Frome Town Walks are organised by the Frome Society for Local Study and will take place on the second Sunday in May, June, July, August and September, and the first Sunday in July during the Frome Festival.

They set off at 2.30 pm 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 foundation in 685 AD by St Aldhelm, through the middle ages to the present day.  There is special emphasis on Frome’s listed buildings with their broad range of religious and vernacular architecture.

The guides are Ruth Angel, Cliff Bawden, Alastair MacLeay and Janet Millar. Arrangements for special town walks should be made with Alastair MacLeay on 01373 836 595 or through info@fsls.org.uk These can cover different areas of Frome such as Fromefield, Trinity, Keyford etc or a specific interest such as architecture or industry. 

Copies of the Frome Heritage Trail (£3), Frome Street and Place-Names (£6) and the Buildings of Frome (£9) will be available to buy.

Regular Frome Town Walks are free, except for those during the Frome Festival and specially organised walks; all contributions and donations are most welcome and will be given to support the Frome Festival. 

The dates of the regular walks  are: 12th May – Janet; 9th June – Ruth; 7th July – Ruth, Cliff; 14th July – Janet, Alastair; 11th August – Cliff; 8th September – Alastair.
