Frome Heritage Museum has a full programme of activities, development projects and activities for visitors. Here are some recent announcements.
Your Apse from your Elme
A most wonderful book has just re-surfaced from 1984. Don’t be put off by the title, which is somewhat less than snappy, A Glossary of Building Terms Used in England from the Conquest to c.1550. This was compiled by Eric Gee PhD, FSA, FR.Hist.Soc. edited by Michael McGarvie FSA and published by the Frome Historical Research Group a scion of the Frome Society for Local Study in 1984. There are no pictures. The museum has a copy.
The museum has re-opened to the public after its winter break and is open Tuesdays to Saturdays, 10am to 2pm and on Frome Independent Market days. It will remain open until mid November.
New Web Site
In January 2022 the museum launched a new website (this website). It is designed to introduce the history of Frome to its citizens and visitors. If there are subjects that interest you and you’d like to know more, visit the museum which is located in the centre of Frome.
