Frome is situated on the river Frome from where it gets it name. Just 13 miles south of Bath there has been a settlement here since Roman times. In fact, in April 2010 a large quantity of Roman coins were found near the town. Like many towns and villages nearby the main source of industry was wool and cloth.
With its independent and branded shops, restaurants, cafes and bars, there is something for everyone in Frome. Markets are held every Wednesday and Saturday and the town is renowned for its Fairtrade Status.
