Frome’s Guided Walks return for 2022

Heritage Tree walkThe ever-popular Frome Guided Walks launch their programme for 2022 on Sunday 3rd April at Frome Heritage Museum. 

The programme, in association with Frome Town Council, mixes perennial favourites such as Foul Frome, Sense of Place and Julian Hight’s Heritage Tree Walk, with several new ones. 

These new walks include following the route of the disused Dorset & Somerset Canal, a walk to Whatley Quarry, one tracing the Rossetti family in Frome and another on Great War graves. 

Frome Guided Walks will also be running the Frome Society for Local Study’s walks from this year, and these remain on the second Sunday of each month throughout the season.   

As part of the launch on 3rd April, which is also Frome Independent Market day, there will be several free walks related to the Celebrated Women of Frome exhibition currently at the museum. These walks will last 30 mins and start at 12pm, 1pm and 2pm from outside the museum. They take in places associated with several of the women being ‘celebrated’ in the exhibition. 

They will end back at the museum, where participants will also get a chance to have a short-guided tour around the exhibition, which runs at the museum in North Parade until 10th July.   

As well as the Frome Guided Walks launch and its exhibitions, Frome Heritage Museum will be hosting a book stall throughout the day which will include both fiction and non-fiction, all of which have been kindly donated, with proceeds from sales going to the museum.

There will also be a Frome Society of Local Study stall, promoting the charitable organisation’s activities, as well as selling its own publications on the town’s history and heritage.   

Membership forms will be available for anyone wanting to join the Frome Society for Local Study (FSLS), with benefits including a lecture programme, social trips, and a copy of its informative yearbook.   

The museum will be open between 10am and 3pm on Independent Market days and for more details on the museum and their current Celebrated Women of Frome exhibition visit the museum’s website.
