Town Walks

The Frome Town Walks are organised by the Frome Society for Local Study and take place on the second Sunday in May, June, July, August and September, and the third 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 a 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

Copies of the Frome Heritage Trail (£3) & The Buildings of Frome (£9) will be available to buy.
Frome Town Walks are free, except for those during the Frome Festival, but contributions to Frome charities are most welcome!

The dates of the walks in 2017 are:

11 June
9 July
16 July
