(Frome, Somerset, England, UK)
Located in the county of Somerset, Frome has been a busy market town for more than 1,000 years and its town centre is full of character, being surrounded by a series of steep hills. The town centre has grown up around the River Frome and the Market Place, with Bath Street and Catherine Hill lying to one side, and North Parade to the other.
Bath Street is a winding hill leading to the Christchurch and Keyford areas, while North Parade heads to the Berkley and Clink side of Frome, where the Stonebridge and Dovecote Farm (Prowtings) residential estates are situated. Those looking to do a spot of shopping will find some of the most charming shops lining the extremely historical Cheap Street, while the more modern Westway Precinct is just across the road.
