The Frome Town Walks are organised by the Frome Society for Local Study and will take place on the second Sunday in 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 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.

*Arrangements for June are subject to change depending on the Government guidelines.
