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.

We have a wide range of fascinating books about the town and surrounding
villages, plus old maps & our own Yearbooks.

Currently, the Frome Society for Local Study is actively involved in:

  •   An annual programme of winter lectures.
  •   An annual programme of summer visits to places of interest.
  •  Continuing its wide range of research, donations, and publications.
