Fun Frome Facts:
- In April 2010 a large hoard of third-century Roman coins was unearthed in a field near the town.
- From AD 950 to 1650, Frome was larger than Bath and originally grew due to the wool and cloth industry. It later diversified into metal-working and printing, although these have declined.
- A number of notable individuals were born in, or have lived in, the town. In 2014, Frome was called the “sixth coolest town” in Britain by The Times newspaper. Frome has recently been shortlisted as one of three towns in the country for the 2016 Urbanism Awards in the ‘Great Town Award’ category.
- The name Frome comes from the Brythonic word *frāmā (Modern Welsh ffraw) meaning fair, fine or brisk and describing the flow of the river.
- The manufacture of woollen cloth was established as the town’s principal industry in the 15th century, and Frome remained the only Somerset town in which this staple industry flourished.
- The town rests on Forest Marble which dates back to the Middle Jurassic, and has been used for local building. The area surrounding the town is Cornbrash, Oxford Clay and Greensand.
- Frome’s Cheap Street is a location in episode six of the first series of BBC TV comedy The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin. Frome has also provided the backdrop to historical dramas, such as Poldark, broadcast in 2016 which has regular scenes shot in Gentle Street, and Drover’s Gold, filmed by BBC Wales in 1996.
- Frome has more than 500 listed buildings, three of which (including the parish church) are grade I listed.
