Located at the eastern end of the Mendip Hills, the town of Frome has a rich and fascinating history. Centred around the River Frome, it is thought that the name of the town and river comes from the word ffraw, Old English for fine, fair or brisk, in describing the flow of the river. In April 2010, the Frome Horad was found, which included the largest hoard of Roman coins found in Britain. The site of the town was also settled by the Saxons, where a monastery was built by St Adhelm in 685. The manufacture of wool was established as the main industry of the town in the fifteenth century and led to major developments in the town. Other industries included a bell foundry that was started in 1684. This unique selection of old and new images will be essential reading for anyone who knows and loves this town.
