About

The Frome Society for Local Study was founded in 1958 by a number of Frome townspeople who realised there was a need to make the history of Frome and the district better known, and to preserve its historic buildings and records. See the Civic Society pages to explore our work & our Planning Panel.

We have a wide range of fascinating books about the town and surrounding
villages, plus old maps & our own Yearbooks.
 
The latest edition of ‘Contact’ magazine is downloadable on the Bookshop page.
