This is for the treasure hunters, as it was only in 2010 that a large horde of Third-Century Roman coins was found in a field near Frome. So grab your shovel and do some exploring around this town sitting at the east end of the Mendip Hills in the eastern part of Somerset. Frome actually sits on the River Frome and is a quaint somewhat weird and quirky country town.
During the English feudal times when most towns had Lords of the Manor in residence, Frome did not. Thriving on a cloth making industry, all of the clothiers were independent, with a brash entrepreneurial attitude. This spirit is alive and well in the town today. Once upon a time there were 8 public toilets in town. The council closed them down years ago. They have been given a new lease of life as a funky cafe and art gallery where every local artist has a "cubicle" for show space. If you are in need of a cubicle of your own for a few moments of relief, the local people business people invented a "public loo" scheme, whereby you just look for a sign in the window of the shops or cafes that offer this amenity to visitors. There is even an "app" listing every community loo in the town.
Pubs abound in Frome because when the water was undrinkable, it was simply brewed into beer to create a drink that was safe for consumption. Streets reflect their heritage such as Gentle Street was where the "gentlefolk" lived, Cheap Street was the main shopping street and the Blind House, was originally a prison that had no windows. There is a thriving arts community, local colorful markets to wonder around and plenty of artisan businesses springing up.
